I have a few questions concerning the Ark, well mainly the practices that surround it. I know that the Ark is kept is a small church in Axum and it is guarded by a single monk who keeps watch over it and I was wondering, after a keeper of the Ark dies, how is another chosen? Is there a certain monastery that he is chosen from? Does the Patriarch choose the guardian? My next question concerns the replica Arks which are kept in Ethiopian churches. Is there anything placed inside these replica Arks such as a copy of the Ten Commandments?
