This article presents a history of the Ethiopian revolution of 1974 in a remote ethnic group called the Maale. A striking feature of the upheaval as it occurred locally was that evangelical Christian converts constituted the revolution's Jacobins – its most radical supporters.

The analysis below highlights local notions of time in both religion and politics to explain these conjunctions.
