The Rastafarian religion originated in Jamaica but it rests on Christian mainstream beliefs which of course began in the Middle East. Rastafarian dietary beliefs, for example, stem from Judaism and the Old Testament There are connections with the history of African kings and in particular with recent historical figures in Ethiopia.
