Abuna Salama III

Abuna Salama III

Salama III (died 25 October 1867) was Abuna, or head of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (1841 - 1867). Originally brought to Ethiopia by Dejazmach Wube Haile Maryam, he afterwards attached himself to the party of Emperor Tewodros II for his help to settle the theological disputes and to gain control over the fractured church organization. However as Emperor Tewodros' power dwindled, Abuna Salama found himself more often at odds with the Emperor until he was made a prisoner (1864), and eventually confined to Magdala where he died of bronchitis aggrivated by his detention.
