Ni kati ya kundi la Watakatifu Tisa wa Kanisa la Kiorthodoksi la Ethiopia wanaosemekana kukimbilia nchi hiyo kutoka sehemu mbalimbali za Dola la Roma[2] kutokana na dhuluma zilizofuata Mtaguso wa Kalsedonia (451). Wengine ni Abba Panteleoni, Abba 'Aléf, Abba Gärima, Abba Guba, Abba Liqanos, Abba Aregawi, Abba Sehma, Abba Aftse. Wote walikuwa wamonaki wasomi waliohuisha Ukristo wa Ethiopia. Wanasemekana kuwa ndio watafsiri wa Agano Jipya kwenda lugha ya Ge'ez.[3]
