L'Etiopia contemporanea dall'impero cristiano al regime di laicità

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Contemporary Ethiopia from the Christian Empire to the secular regime

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The essay traces the story of contemporary Ethiopia from the last Christian empire of Haile Selassie, founded on the confessional model, to its overthrow and the drastic transition to a secular state formula. It was the attempt to re-establish the state on new political-religious balances, in which the Christian confessional configuration was supplanted by a secular regime, which guaranteed equal treatment to the religious components of the country. The events connected with the 1974 revolution, with the beginning of the twenty-year military dictatorship of the Derg until its fall in 1991, have left alive a Church of ancient origins, which has represented an essential element of continuity in the various historical seasons, marked instead from significant moments of discontinuity.
