Stolen Tabot at Westminster

The situation regarding Westminster Abbey and its stolen Ethiopian Orthodox tabot (ark) has been in the news for a while now, but I wanted to post a link to The Guardian's article on the situation for whoever hadn't heard about it. It's a complete travesty that the tabot was taken at all. Westminster's refusal to return it only compounds the outrageousness of the situation.


  1. I had known about this. It comes as no surprise to me. I'm outraged but unsurprised.

  2. And for it to be ON DISPLAY in such a heathen place - no one but the clergy can look at a tabot!
