Ethiopia, Tigray Province, Atsbi. A Tigray woman has a cross of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church tattooed on her forehead while two silver crosses hang round her neck. The people living in the highlands of Northern Ethiopia are deeply religious. They believe in the single divine nature of Christ; this is fundamentally different from Western religious beliefs, which regard Christ as both human and divine.Ethiopia is Africa's oldest Christian nation. Christianity was introduced there in the fourth Century AD.
