The Ethiopian Orthodox Church numbers among the Oriental Orthodox Churches; along with the Coptic, Syrian, and Armenian Orthodox Churches, it confesses a Monophysite Christology, not accepting the decrees of the Council of Chalcedon (451), and recognizing only the first three Ecumenical Councils.
The flowering of the Ethiopian school of iconography took place between the periods of the High and Late Middle Ages. Contemporary artists continue the preservation and continuation of the traditions of national art.
