Women — backbones of the Ethiopian Church

The Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion has roots that go back hundreds of years to the reign of King Ezana. The original structure has been rebuilt a few times since then – a couple of times completely. And the Ark is kept in the Chapel of the Tablet, separate from the church. This, so it’s said, is because when the Ark was in the original church, the divine heat it produced cracked the walls!
