I have been researching the origins of freemasonry ritual and have found myself in the Fatimides dynasty in Cairo around 1100 CE - plus some evidence of similar ritual in the first of the Triads of China, who trace it back, supposedly, to around 300 B.C. when it came from India. This leaves me chasing every possible source of information on ritual in the 'middle east' in period of antiquity. Grateful any comments on sources and their whereabouts.
