From about the 1st century AD, Ethiopia became one of the oldest Christian nations in the world. It's also happens to be one of the oldest Muslim nations, and today the country is 35% Islam. However, it's the Christian faith that it's known for, with its major treasure being the Ark of the Covenant (think Indiana Jones!). It supposedly contains the ten commandments, and is housed in a rather low key building with a solitary minder, the only person allowed to see the thing ! Anyway, this is a gallery of entirely Christian people and imagery.
