Why the Ethiopian Orthodox Church should rectify historical injustice


Leaders of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) on Wednesday agreed to end a weeks-long schism within its top leadership after closed-door negotiations.

The Church has been rocked by divisions and explosive accusations of ethnic discrimination since January 22, 2023, when three Oromo archbishops appointed 26 multilingual episcopates to parishes in Oromia and other areas in the South. The announcement was met with condemnation by the EOTC Synod and the three leaders were quickly excommunicated. The three archbishops countered the move by forming a new multilingual synod to serve followers in Oromia and other areas in the south of the country.
