Photographer's Note

This is a priest praying outside a rock hewn church in Lalibella. Orthodox Christianity is the official religion in Ethiopia, although currently there are more muslims in the country than christians.

Ethiopian christianity is impregnated with jewish influence and the overall rites and customs are probably closer to those inmediately inherited from Jesus' time than those of European based christianity.
