The most fascinating collection of sacred texts is without doubt the "Bandlet of Righteousness." Among the contents is the awe-inspiring 'Scrolls of Life', (MASHAFA HAYWAT) in Ethiopic and the 'MYSTICAL NAMES OF THE PERSONS OF THE TRINITY' (TERGUAME FIDAL) in Amharic. Bandages of parchments were used to wrap the dead as part of an ancient tradition linked to the belief that they will assist the wearer to come forth on the day of Judgement.
Parchments were also used as amulets. Upon which were inscribed spells, mystical symbols, crosses and figurines to ward off disease and sickness in men and children. It was use by women as protection especially for miscarriages and abortions caused by evil spirits to ensure safe delivery. Those accused for the illegal removal and theft of these sacred items are now also accountable for misguidance. They even erroneously suggested that the stolen loot of parchments, now located in many inaccessible vaults of several libraries, museums, and universities constitute the famed ' Lafafa Sedek.'
However these hold very little in common with the authentic 'Scroll of Life; which has the claim of being written by the hands of the Creator. It was conceived to protect the deceased from mutilation in the grave and the awful fire in Hell. This scroll serves as a key to attain everlasting life in paradise. This fact links it directly with the 'Pert Em Hru'. This is also known as the 'Egyptian Book of the Dead', of which the best-preserved copy is the 'Paprus of Ani' and dates to the Eighteenth Dynasty of Kushite regents (1575 B.C.E.) in Ta-Meri, while other copies are dated from as early as the Fifth Dynasty.
The ancestors of the Christians of Sudan and Ethiopia were the ones who established an ancient culture that eventually exported civilization to the north (i.e. Tameri/ KMT) since 3500 B.C.E. This was done under the leadership of a regent known only by the name ‘SCORPION’. In the year 270 B.C.E. Ptolemy Philadelpheus commanded African-European High-Priest of Sebenmytus, Manetho, to "Write a Complete History of Egypt." "Manetho's History" was the first to divide Egyptian experiences into Dynasties, all of which he placed securely in the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt.
Nevertheless, some of Manetho's writings were saved through the writings of ancient historians, who had copied from him and by many others who copied from them. The most important ancient offshoot from Manetho's works is called the "Palermo Stone", mentioned dramatically in the works of Breasted and others. It is an engraved "Stone", showing records of pharaohs’ kings, of the first Five (5) Dynasties. 1st to 3rd Proto-Dynastic 4777 to 3998 B. C. E., and IVth to Vth Old Kingdom 3998 - ? B. C. E.
In the next period, known as Naqada III, Egypt has by now, been split-up into many administrative/territorial divisions, known as Nomes. Each nome has its own sacred animal or plant that became the totem, or emblem of that nome. This emblem was usually depicted on the pottery of each nome.
It is also at this time that we see Egypt referred to as - Upper and Lower Egypt - with twenty nomes in Lower Egypt and twenty-two in Upper Egypt. Each nome had its own ruler, but perhaps with an over-all ruler. It is not known what the original political make-up was, or how many times if any, there was unity and then a break-up. There were thirteen or so rulers in (Upper Egypt), of which only the last few have been identified, though these are by no means certain:
The rulers who named themselves after animals, were probably attempting to identify themselves with the divinity that their religion associated with these animals.
The rulers became the personification of the named animal-god. As later on, the pharaohs were known as, the "Son of Ra" or son of some other God.
In Upper Egypt these rulers wore the "white crown" of Upper Egypt and were depicted as superhuman figures, giants who towered above mortal men.
They were also depicted as being war-like, Scorpion's mace-head hints at the nature of these Upper Egyptian rulers.
Although a four-chambered tomb in Abydos designated as B50, has been speculated as being Scorpion’s burial place.
No conclusive evidence of Scorpions existence has yet been found at Abydos, where the tombs of several first Dynasty kings and even some preceding Dynasty “0” kings have been found.
Some scholars are not even sure Scorpion actually existed, (perhaps Scorpion was a title; perhaps the Scorpion sign did not signify the person’s name at all).
