Narzidini Ritual?

Reading the latest version of "The Texas Prince Hall Freemason" available online, I find an article about the Texas Prince Hall University, which mentions a "Narzidini Ritual." Can somebody tell me what that's about? Is it okay to discuss online?

I am taking that class and can tell you that the Narzidini Ritual is just a version of the Degree rituals. Just like Lesters' or Pike.

The Nizzardini is also called the, "Ecci Orienti" also the Black Book. It was copyrighted in 1951 by Anthony Nizzardini. Many Prince Hall Mason for whom the ritual was created, believe that the origin of the ritual began with him. It has been research and found that the Ecci Orienti was first compiled by Moses Wolcott Redding before 1870. We know that Nizzardini revised the original Ecci Orienti based on the birth date of Nizzardini and the date of the adoption of the Ecci Orienti in Washington State. I go into this issue on my blog: The Quill And The Sword quillandsword.blogspot.com

Its the black book. Coded or English version. We use it in NC by order of the MWGM of NC. From what I'm told not a lot of jurisdictions use the coded. I was taught the coded before I ever knew it was an English version.

The Ritual that our jurisdiction issues is coded and was done so back in the early 1920's. By past Grand Masters. ImageUploadedByFreemasonry1374669109.698557.jpg

Hello, I am new here and do not know the rules. I am seeking information. My last name is Nizzardini, and Anthony was my great uncle. My earliest memories are with him. It seems I have had no understanding of his life work. I am hoping people can point me in the direction to learn more about this. Thank you
