10. Legal pluralism and Protestant Christianity From fine to forgiveness in an Aari community Julian Sommerschuh Introduction For several years, the topic of legal pluralism in Ethiopia has been the subject of lively scholarly debate (e.g. Donovan and Getachew 2003, Pankhurst and Getachew 2008, Baker 2013, Girmachew 2015).
