The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church is one of the extremely antiquated 'Oriental Orthodox Churches'. She was established in AD 34 after the submersion of an eunuch of extraordinary authority under Candace, sovereign of the Ethiopians by Philip (Acts 8:26-34). She acknowledges and stringently follows the opinionated assertions of the initial three Ecumenical Councils, specifically the Council of Nicaea (325), the Council of Constantinople (381) and the Council of Ephesus (431). In stressing her profound faith in the association of the two qualities (the humankind and heavenly nature) in the one individual of our Lord Jesus Christ (without division, without partition, without disarray and without combination), she is named as 'Tewahedo'.
The commitment of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church to Ethiopian progress in propelling training and workmanship overall is colossal. She established the framework of instruction in the country. It is from this Church that the Geez script, which is the main native letter set on the African Continent, started. This Geez script has its own letters in order as well as its own numerals. Up to this point, each area had its Church school in each town. The point of these schools was to teach the offspring of the parishioners in Church standards, writing, church customs, petitions and songs. A portion of the alumni of these schools created strict, recorded and abstract original copies on material. Albeit these compositions were composed manually and not results of distributing houses, they are not the slightest bit second rate compared to present day types of imprinting in their quality. They are primarily accessible in the wards, religious communities, and some Church libraries. A portion of these books are currently accessible in different unfamiliar colleges and libraries. They bear declaration to antiquated Ethiopian history, culture and development. To put it plainly, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church "doesn't comprise an absolutely strict peculiarity on the nation, however assumes a vital part in all parts of public life. The Church isn't just a strict establishment, however has been the archive of the social, political and public activity of individuals for a long time."
