Author: Abba Teodros Ghebretensae
The idea of writing this book was born from my desire to acquaint better the Tigrinya speaking people, through the story of the Popes, with the Universal Church of Rome. A short history of The Popes from St. Peter to Pope Francis is a tangible example of the construction and sharing of knowledge according to an international and intercultural approach. The decision of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches to entrust this publishing project to the Communication Officer of the Pontifical Oriental Institute is a sign of its desire to establish a new direction for Eastern Christianity in the field of publishing and communication. Acting as a community, not separately or in isolation but in a shared framework, is our rule. This volume, thanks to the collaboration with Edizioni Valore Italiano, which has provided its excellent publishing services, will also be available for purchase on the internet from Amazon, in Kindle eBook format.
