Ethiopia is Africa's oldest nation. According to Operation World, North Ethiopia was one of the first Christian nations – from the 4th Century. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church became the State Church from 1270 until the 1974 revolution. The Marxist regime persecuted Christians, especially Evangelicals, with many church buildings destroyed and congregations scattered. Since 1991, there has been unprecedented freedom for worship and witness. The government seeks to deal even-handedly with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the increasingly active and growing Muslim minority. Persecution Index 44th in the world.
