In Heirotopia, Ethiopia's Holy Forests, filmed from an aerial, angel's eye view, photographer Keiran Dodds shows us islands of ancient woodland in a denuded land, each protected by a church at its centre. Wolde Tadesse delves into the history of this rural ecclesiastical landscape. John Binns explores how theology is done and transmitted in the oral tradition. Marta Camilla Wright shares her doctoral work on the use of varying kinds of holy water in healing processes, within and outside Orthodox confines - an interest shared by Dr Diego Malara. Cressida Marcus brings the latest news from the churches of Gondar.
