      A Short life history of martyrbishop Abune Petros
      who became martyr on the 29th of July 1936, in
      Addis Ababa Ethiopia in the struggle against
      colonialism and oppression.

      By Fesseha Mekuria and Sven Rubenson (Lund, Sweden)

      Abune Petros was born in 1892 in a farmer family
      in the city of Fiche, which is situated north of
      Addis Ababa. He got the baptismal name Hailemariam
      that means power of Maria. As the custom of the
      Ethiopian Orthodox Church (EOC) tradition he got
      a special bishop name, that is PETROS with the
      Ethiopian title for a bishop which is ABUNE. As
      a young boy Abune Petros was known as clever,
      helpful and humble disciple in the church and city
      of Fiche. He chose early to study the EOC diakon
      and priest education...........
