A cultural and social History professor at the University of Toronto, Gervers has been fascinated by the rock carved churches of Lalibela since he first visited them in 1982.

He found it amazing how the 15 meter square and four meters high churches were built manually in such a short time .

Metro Toronto quoted the professor as saying “these churches are not only carved in to the rock but out of it as well”

The University of Toronto professor, Micheal Gervers, has now secured $250K from the Arcadia Fund to work on a documentary that shows how the churches were built .

The documentary film is aimed at preserving the skills of carving the churches and passing them to the next generation. The footage will be hosted online free for 20 years .

Professor Gervers provides Ethiopian History courses at the University of Toronto.
