If one was to see beyond poverty and deprivation in Ethiopia, they would discover huge spiritual wealth firmly founded on principle and tradition. Among the deepest roots are those of Orthodox Christianity. Christianity arrived in the 4th century A.D. putting its stamp on the culture of the land and everyday life for the majority of its people: 60% of Ethiopians follow the Monophysite Christian doctrine. Their profound faith, the wonder of churches located in distant, often practically unreachable, spots, religious rituals that exude spirituality, all come together to make this African country a unique arc travelling through time bringing into the present what feels like a changeless past.
