Filseta is one of the seven canonized fasts of the Ethiopian church, which is observed as a remembrance of the fast the apostles held in passion of witnessing the falling asleep and assumption of Saint Maryam (Mary). It covers the period from the 1st to the 15th of Nehasie (August 7-22). Filseta literally means movement in the Ge’ez language, and is used to refer to St. Mary’s assumption.
