Replica of the Ten Commandants


I know the Ethiopian and Eritrean Churches put a replica of the Ten Commandments in their altar area.
Do any other Orthodox Church do that?
May God Bless


  • Not in the Coptic Orthodox Church
  • My guide in Axum (where the Ethiopians believe the original Ark is housed) told me that there is a copy in every church symbolising the Mother of God who bore Christ through Whom grace and truth came; whereas the original Ark housed the ten commandments given through Moses.

    I think that is it in a nutshell. It sounded reasonable to me.
