Sixty eight articles of the historical and commemoration themes found in the Zena
Betakerestiyan ze Eteyopeya newspaper of the nineteen years period have been analyzed
for their content and scholarship. The result revealed that the explored articles are
comprehensive in their content dealing with the history of the church, its popular
figures, institutions, communities and relation with the state and foreign communities.
The scholarship applied for the reconstruction of such issues, however, threatens not
only the quality but also the reliability of the produced accounts, no matter how the few
strong sides are not deniable.
