A little too much jargon, Yared

A conference notice tells us that this paper will be given:

Deacon Andualem Dagmawi, University of St. Michael’s College:
The Reception of St. Ephrem’s Apophaticism in the Hymnography of St. Yared the Ethiopian 

Erm, you what?  Who?

I know who Ephrem the Syrian is — 4th century very important Syriac writer, big on hymns and poems, who wrote one against Julian the Apostate. 

But I have no idea what “apophaticism” might be.  I have never heard of St. Yared the Ethiopian.  If I don’t — and I consume patrologies as light reading — I can’t imagine who does.

  1. I’m familiar with apophaticism (i.e., negative theology) but I’ve not heard of Yared the Ethiopian. If you happen to hear this paper presented make sure to let us know who he is.
