Orthodox Outlet for Dogmatic Enquiries




Apparently the area of Djibouti had no significant association with Christianity during antiquity and the early centuries of Christianity. Through close contacts with the adjacent Arabian Peninsula after the establishment of Islam, the Somali and Afar ethnic groups in the region became among the first populations on the continent of Africa to embrace Islam.

The Orthodox Christian adherents in Djibouti today constitute a very small percentage of the population of the country that is largely Muslim. The majority of indigenous Orthodox Christians of Djibouti are members of the non-Chalcedonian Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The Chalcedonian Orthodox Christians of Djibouti are under the jurisdiction of the Holy Archdiocese of Aksum of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria and all Africa.
