    Om Quest for the Ark of the Covenant

    In a chapel in the old crenellated church of Mary of Zion in Aksum, Ethiopia is kept_x000D_an object that emperors, patriarchs and priests have assured the world is the most_x000D_important religious relic of all time: the tabota Seyon, Ark of the Covenant, the Ark_x000D_of Zion. This Ark is alleged to be no other than the Ark that Moses had constructed_x000D_at Sinai and which destroyed the walls of Jericho. It was brought into Jerusalem by King_x000D_David and installed in a magnificent temple by King Solomon. Then, the story goes, it_x000D_came to Ethiopia of its own choice with the half-Ethiopian, half-Jewish son of Solomon_x000D_and the Queen of Sheba._x000D_Are the legends true? Or is this story a monumental deception? Is there any real proof_x000D_or is it the faith of a people alone that has created this Ark? From ancient texts to local_x000D_stories, from the Bible to the writings of sixteenth and seventeenth century Jesuits, Stuart_x000D_Munro-Hay traces the extraordinary legend of Ethiopia's Ark in what is a triumph of_x000D_historical detective work. Munro-Hay scrutinises every mention of the Ark in Ethiopian_x000D_records and tests every theory before he reaches his shocking conclusion. The Quest for_x000D_the Ark of the Covenant promises to settle the mystery of the Ark of the Covenant_x000D_for once and for all._x000D_
