‘TWO REVOLUTIONS BEHIND: IS THE ETHIOPIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH AN OBSTACLE OR CATALYST FOR SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT?’

J. A. Loubser

Abstract


As part of a project to investigate the spiritual and moral roots for an African
Renaissance the paper employs an inter-disciplinary approach, investigating the
intersection between religion and social development. This is done with reference to
developmental issues as they become manifest in Ethiopia. An analysis of the social
role of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is accompanied by a critical review of some
theories and strategies for social development. Since Ethiopia is one of the major
beneficiaries of US and international aid the paper also considers options for
sustainable social development.
