Few Ethiopian holy places, like Debre Damo (above) and Degum, can be probably credited to the Aksumite time frame. These two designs most likely date to the sixth hundred years or later. As yet standing pre-sixth century Aksumite houses of worship have not been with certainty distinguished. Nonetheless, archeologists accept that few presently demolished structures dating to the fourth or fifth century worked as temples — an end in light of highlights like their direction. A huge ventured platform in the compound of the congregation of Mary of Zion in Aksum (considered by the Ethiopians as the residence of the Ark of the Pledge), most likely once gave admittance to an enormous church worked during this period.
This period takes its name from the city of Aksum which had been the capital of Ethiopia for quite a long time before the transformation to Christianity of Ruler Ezana (who governed from c. 320-360) and filled in as capital for quite some time later. While we can’t preclude the likelihood that Christianity had been available in the country preceding the change of this ruler, it is just beginning from this period that declarations of particularly Christian convictions show up in the material record.
