Lone Priest

Lone Ethiopian Orthodox Priest

This photo taken in 2008, is of an Ethiopian Orthodox priest who lives on the roof of the Church of Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem. Why he lives on the roof is quite an interesting story, having to do with the fight for custodianship of the church between the various Christian sects who now control it. If the temperature wasn’t 100 degrees day, it sure felt like it.
