WATCH: BBC Documentary on Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity

Christianity in Ethiopia traces its roots to the earliest centuries. In this documentary, a BBC reporter discovers some of the unique traditions of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, including the famous Church of St. George in Lalibela, carved from solid red volcanic rock in the 12th century. Some have even called it the “Eighth Wonder of the World.”

To get a sense of Ethiopia’s vibrant Christian tradition, check out the YouTube video above, and learn more about relations between Eastern Orthodoxy and Ethiopian Orthodoxy in Fr. Lawrence Farley’s recent article, “Ethiopia Will Quickly Stretch Out Her Hands to God.”
