Selamawit Mecca, an expert on Ethiopian female saints and an assistant professor of Ethiopian literature at Addis Ababa University, reads from a book about Walatta Petros. The Ethiopian saint Walatta Petros scolded her fellow females for wasting time on manicures instead of praying. She argued forcefully with the male leaders of her country. And she helped drive Portuguese missionaries from Ethiopia in the 17th century, preserving one of the earliest forms of Christianity, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Ewostatewos , Latin Eustathius , died , Armenia , Ethiopian saint and founder of one of the two great Ethiopian monastic communities. Ewostatewos and his disciples respected the traditional Judaic customs of the Ethiopian Church concerning the sabbath and impure meats and held the view that the anointing of Jesus after his death brought about a fusion of his human and divine natures one of the fundamental doctrinal points of Monophysitism—the belief in a single, divine nature of Christ—which is the foundation of the Ethiopian Church. Ewostatewos also was a destroyer of tribal shrines and sought to remove the vestiges of pre-Christian practice remaining in the Ethiopian Church.
The Nine Saints were a group of missionaries who were important in the initial growth of Christianity in what is now Ethiopia during the late 5th century. Although frequently described as coming from Syria , only two or three actually came from that province; according to Paul B. Henze, others have been traced to Constantinople , Anatolia , and even Rome. The Ethiopian historian Taddesse Tamrat speculates that they may have been connected with the anti- Monophysite and anti- Miaphysite persecutions that followed the Council of Chalcedon , which adopted Dyophysitism.
