Ethiopian Customary Tewahedo Church, autocephalous Oriental Universal church in Ethiopia. Base camp are in Addis Ababa, the nation’s capital.
Custom holds that Ethiopia was first proselytized by St. Matthew and St. Bartholomew in the first century CE, and the primary Ethiopian proselyte is remembered to have been the eunuch in Jerusalem referenced in The Demonstrations of the Messengers (8:27-40). Ethiopia was additionally Christianized in the fourth century CE by two men (possible siblings) from Tire — St. Frumentius, later sanctified the primary Ethiopian cleric, and Aedesius. They won the certainty of the lord at Aksum (a strong realm in northern Ethiopia) and were permitted to proselytize. The succeeding ruler, Ezana, was absolved by Frumentius, and Christianity was made the state religion. Around the finish of the fifth hundred years, nine priests from Syria are said to have carried religion to Ethiopia and empowered the interpretation of the Sacred writings into the Geʿez language.
The Ethiopian church followed the Coptic (Egyptian) church (presently called the Coptic Customary Church of Alexandria) in dismissing the Christological choice gave by the Gathering of Chalcedon in 451 CE that the human and heavenly qualities of Jesus Christ were similarly present in one individual without mixing together. Gone against to this dyophysitism, or two-nature teaching, the Coptic and Ethiopian houses of worship held that the human and heavenly qualities were similarly present through the secret of the Manifestation inside a solitary nature.
