Rome - The Orthodox Patriarch, Abuno Paulos, wants to reveal the millennial
secret, and in an exclusive interview with Adnkronos said, "The time is
ripe to tell the truth." A museum for the sacred symbol will be built in
Axum.

This was said in an exclusive interview with Adnkronos, visible on the web
site _www.adnkronos.com_ (www.adnkronos.com...) , by the Patriarch of
the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia, Abuna Paulos, in Italy for a "G8 of
religions," who tomorrow will meet for the first time with Pope Benedict XVI, to
whom, "if he asks," continued the Patriarch, "I will tell all of the entire
situation regarding the Ark of the Covenant."

"The Ark of the Covenant," affirms Paulos, "has been in Ethiopia for many
centuries. As Patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes, and only a very
few qualified people have been able to do this, so far." According to the
Patriarch, it is kept in a church, but to defend the authentic one, a copy of
the religious symbol has been placed in every church in the country.

The official announcement, in which Ethiopia will give to the world the
keys to the millennial secret of the Ark, will be given next Friday during a
press conference at 2:00 p.m. at the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome, by the same
Orthodox Patriarch of Ethiopia, along with Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen
Haile Selassie and Duke Amedeo D'Aosta, who will be in Rome tomorrow morning.

According to some studies, the Ark was stolen from Jerusalem by the son of
King Solomon and brought to Axum, regarded as the Jerusalem of Ethiopia. A
museum will be built in Axum to host the Ark, a project funded by the
Foundation of the Prince, designated heir to the throne by Haile Selassie
shortly before his death. The Foundation is named Crhijecllu, an acronym of
the initials of the children of the Prince: Christian, Jessica, Clarissa,
Lucrezia.

A few weeks ago the news was made known around the world that the authentic
Ark had been seen by a journalist in an Ethiopian church. It was then
that Patriarch Paulos made the decision "to tell the world the truth once and
for all," about the wooden and gold chest with the Tables of the Law of
God. The Patriarch has judged the time to be ripe to permanently close the
chapter in which up to now no historian, no researcher, no "Indiana Jones"
was able to write the true story.

The Patriarch of the ancient Orthodox Church of Ethiopia has wanted to have
at his side in this adventure the grandson of the last Negus, head of an
important family, whose role is recognized both in Ethiopia and abroad.
The Prince heir two years ago managed to reconcile the Christian and Muslim
factions at the center of a hard conflict in Ethiopia.

The countdown is now begun to finally unveil the mystery of the sacred Ark
of the Covenant, capable, according to legend, of releasing bursts of
divine light and lightning that can incinerate anyone who was hit, as was so
effectively portrayed in the cult movie, "Raiders of the Lost Ark." The
fiction of the film will now be transferred to reality.

The press conference next Friday with the official announcement was made
possible thanks to the collaboration of Paolo Salerno, along with the Prince
and the journalist Antonio Parisi, who for several years has followed the
historical events of royal families and that of Ethiopia in particular, and
of course that of the Ark of the Covenant.

But what is the Ark of the Covenant, one of the greatest mysteries of
antiquity, on which fantasy, legend and history have continued to be interwoven
for centuries? The Ark, in Jewish tradition, contained the Tables of the
Law, that is, the Ten Commandments, and the artifact, made of acacia wood,
was built by Moses. The outside decorations were of gold, and it was for a
long time kept by the Jewish people. It accompanied them in their
vicissitudes, the battles and defeats, the wanderings and struggles against the
Philistines, and was kept in various places until King David placed it in the
fortress of Jerusalem.

But it was Solomon, son and successor of David, who put the Ark in the
Temple of Jerusalem which he had built. The story is then interwoven with
historical events and other religious and national traditions. In fact, the
Ark disappeared in 586 BC with the conquest of Jerusalem by the Babylonians
and the consequent destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem.

However, there is no written testimony of its destruction, and so the Ark
became a symbol eternally sought by men and traced in several parts of the
world, from Africa to the Middle East. Ethiopian tradition places the Ark
in the kingdom of Axum, after Solomon had given it to the son of the Queen
of Sheba, Menelik I. Here, it remained over the centuries, protected by
Orthodox monks in the holy city of Lalibela, near Axum, where it would still
be found today.

The Ark, which is not visible to anybody except a monk who guards it, is
preserved in the complex of the cathedral of Saint Mary of Zion, and
therefore is hidden to all, and is carried in a procession once a year, but wrapped
in a cloth.

The Ark has inspired the fantasies of archaeologists, writers, religious
groups, of every kind. In fact, tradition states that it emanates a certain
power, but also that those who touch it are incinerated. It is an object
that given its location -- the Temple of Jerusalem -- has from time to time
been at the center of stories related to the Masons or the Knights
Templar. However, it should be remembered that there are many churches in
Ethiopia which kept an "Ark," and that other scholars -- often moving at the
boundaries of mystery and legend -- have placed it in various other parts of the
world.

Wow. I'll be watching this unfold (or not)...any thoughts on the credibility of the source? I've not heard of them. Nor do I know the language the OP links to. Pretty interesting though.

So the real Ark will be put on display in the museum. Hmmm......how will we know it's not just one of the copies? I wonder if there will be an actual display of its powers? I'm going to pay attention as this comes to fruition.

I have no idea how credible the source is. I mean I know I've heard a lot about this place in Ethiopia.

But I don't know about the "unveiling" and "when" - It's certainly surprising. There are 30,000 arcs in Ethiopia (but all but one are the replicas).

I t will not be on live television will it? I don't want my face to melt off or have my head to explode, nor do I want the people I care about to have their faces melt or have their heads explode. Basically, I do not want to be involved with any face-melting or heads exploding.

So if it disappeared 2500 years ago or came to Ethiopia in 950 BC and then 30,000 copies were made....

well I don't see how there could be any trouble figuring out which is the real one


but then again, maybe I'm being an idiot. After all the real arc, may have a way to convince it's the real deal.

good plan.

I'm with you. maybe we can watch through sun glasses.

Supposedly the guard monks go blind. Like looking at the sun, I suppose. Or it's psychosomatic?

Wow.

If this is the real deal - and Ethiopia has the true ark and it will be reveled?

I hope this isn't a joke.

Then again maybe it would be better for the world sake if it is...

peace

If it is the real Arc then expect the rabbis in Israel to demand it's return.I think the Ethiopians will give the world a look at one of the older replicas they have there is no way they will put the Holy of Hollies on display in a museum. It will remain in the church of St.Mary in Axum.

I hope it isn't a joke either. I'm trying to look for news from Rome. If he declared this at the Vatican, it should be in more papers.
