The Ethiopian Christian Artistic Tradition
Last month Jonathan Pagineau had an interesting article, The Mystery of Ethiopian Iconography:
Ethiopian Christianity presents many mysteries to us, their unique use of Old Testament typology, their concentric churches, their claim of having the Ark of the Covenent and its use in liturgy – these all create an obscure but fascinating question. I went to Ethiopia in 2009 to discover more about their liturgical arts. I would like to share some of my findings with you.
Aside from the article itself, Jonathan shares some very interesting photographs from the Ethiopian Christian artistic tradition.
