Charles Edwards (Rastafari)

Prince Emanuel Charles Edwards, 1915–1994, was a Jamaican Rastafari who founded the Bobo Shanti order[1] in 1958 in Bull Bay in Jamaica.[2] and is held by that group to be a member of the holy Trinity, along with Haile Selassie I and Marcus Garvey. The triune positions of the Bobo Shanti trinity are as follows; Haile Selassie is regarded as King or God, Garvey is perceived to be a prophet and Emmanuel, a High Priest and he is also believed to be Melchizedek of the Bible.[2]
