Ethiopia was known from the dawn of civilisation and has a 3000 years old history. The ancient Egyptians knew that their sacred and vital river Nile originated from a lake on a plateau in the land of "Punt" ("Land of the Gods" in their language) and they knew about a garden existing beyond the desert.
However, also historical sources bear witness to the existence of a rich and powerful kingdom with a high level of civilisation in pre-Christian times.
Ethiopia can be considered one of the first Christian states. Before, Judaism, introduced most probably by several waves of immigration from Israel, had played a major role in the northern and western centres of the country. From that time on, Christianity has become a major component of Ethiopian culture, up to date. cient and glorious past of this country remain: the monolithic churches of Lalibela, the carved obelisks and churches of Axum, more than 120 monasteries and rock rockchurches in the rigon .
