The Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy is a text from Jamaica, written during the 1920s by a proto-Rastafari preacher, Fitz Balintine Pettersburg. Along with The Holy Piby and Leonard P. Howell's The Promise Key (the latter of which made considerable use of content from Pettersburg's work), the Royal Parchment Scroll is today recognized as one of the root documents of Rastafari thought.[1]
