This is a text from Jamaica, written during the 1920s by a proto-Rastafarian preacher, Fitz Balintine Pettersburg. The text is primarily of historical significance. Along with The Holy Piby, the Royal Parchment Scroll is today recognized as one of the root documents of Rastafarian thought. It is a rambling, surrealistic stream-of-consciousness polemic against the White colonial power structure, a 'found' palimpsest of Afrocentric thought, brimming with rage and energy.

It is very difficult to obtain copies of this text today. The Royal Parchment Scroll was used in the 1930s as the basis for The Promised Key by Leonard Percival Howell
