Tanbihi[hariri | hariri chanzo]
- Tekle Haymanot is frequently represented as an old man with wings on his back and only one leg visible. There are a number of explanations for this popular image. C.F. Beckingham and G.W.B. Huntingford recount one story, that the saint "having stood too long for about 34 years, one of his legs broke or cut while Satan was attempting to stop his prayers, whereupon he stood on one foot for 7 years." C.F. Beckingham and G.W.B. Huntingford, trans. The Prester John of the Indies by Alfonso Alvarez, (Cambridge: Hakluyt Society, 1961), p. 394n.
- Paul B. Henze describes his missing leg as appearing as a "severed leg ... in the lower left corner discreetly wrapped in a cloth." Paul B. Henze, Layers of Time: A History of Ethiopia (New York: Palgrave, 2000), p. 63
- The traveller Thomas Pakenham learned from the Prior of Debre Damo how Tekle Haymanot received his wings:
- One day he said he would go to Jerusalem to see the Garden of Gethsemane and the hill of the skull that is called Golgotha. But Shaitan (Satan) planned to stop Tekla Haymanot going on his journey to the Holy Land, and he cut the rope which led from the rock to the ground just as Tekla Haymanot started to climb down. Then God gave Tekla Haymanot six wings and he flew down to the valley below ... and from that day onwards Teklahaimanot would fly back and forth to Jerusalem above the clouds like an aeroplane. Thomas Pakenham, The Mountains of Rasselas (New York: Reynal, 1959), p. 84
- This monastery became one of the most important religious institutions of Ethiopia, not only founding a number of daughter houses, but its abbot became one of the principal leaders of the Ethiopian Church, called the Echege, second only to the Abuna.
- Tekle Haymanot "is the only Ethiopian saint celebrated officially in foreign churches such as Rome and Egypt." Tesfaye Gebre Mariam, "A Structural Analysis of Gädlä Täklä Haymanot", African Languages and Cultures, 10 (1997), p. 184
