Beyene Chekol works as a senior lecturer and mentor in history and heritage management department of Debre Markos University. His research articulates the practice and significance of religious pilgrimage in Orthodox Christian Churches of Addis Ababa. Orthodox Churches in Addis Ababa have long history, which have been established for providing spiritual and secular services.
Pertaining to religion, churches have provided spiritual services in the form of teaching in religious schools, video-visual preaching, publications, printed leaflets, and pilgrimages. People have traveled from place to place within or out of their country for spiritual conception which is expressed as pilgrimage. Orthodox churches in Addis Ababa, therefore encouraged pilgrimage in the sense of seeing different shrines of Christianity as a good way of devotion and penance for spiritual life, for economic and ideological benefits.
This study is attempted to express the main concepts how and when the pilgrimage was started in the case of these four churches of Addis Ababa, to argue on the notable sites for religious tour and the manner how these places have been visited by the pilgrims, and to show significances of such religious journeys. For intelligible qualitative analysis method, the researcher collected the data from available archival materials, books, articles, and informants who are active participants of the pilgrimage.
Intellectuals have made valuable enquiries on pilgrimage discourses of religion. Their works, however, failed to see details about practice of this aspect in Ethiopia. This gap is a motivation to do this research focusing on selected Orthodox Christianity Churches of Addis Ababa. The essay examines the development, processes, and significance of pilgrimage in these Churches of Addis Ababa.
It will hopefully make a significant contribution to knowledge of Religious pilgrimage practices in Addis Ababa in particular and Ethiopia in general. It will also serve as a reference for those who intend to engage in further study of this religious theme. The enquiry is conducted through systematic collection of archival and other data from the National Archive and Library Agency and Institute of Ethiopian Studies in Addis Ababa.
