Locating the text of the rite of ἀδελφοποίησις?

Postby ἑκηβόλος » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:55 am

Does anybody know of an online location for a text of the mediaeval rite of ἀδελφοποίησις from the Greek Orthodox tradition if it existed there?
I sang of the dancing stars,
I sang of the daedal Earth,
And of Heaven -- and the giant wars,
And Love, and Death, and Birth, --
(Shelley, Hymn of Pan)

I am certain it exists in the Greek Orthodox tradition and it has had some popular interest since many mistakenly think it shows same sex unions being blessed in the Church.

It was used to reconcile enemies.
