"The Ark of the
Covenant - said Pauolos - is in Ethiopia
for many centuries. As a Patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes and
only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now".
According to Patriarch, it is kept in one of the churches, but to
defend that authentic, one copy of this religious symbol was placed in
every single church in Ethiopia.
At Axum will be build
Museum in which the Arc will be
exposed. It will be funded by the Foundation of the Prince, made
hereditary of the throne by Haile Selassie shortly before his death.
