Although widespread across the Roman Empire, the worship of Mithras appears to have emerged in Persia sometime between 2000 BCE and 1 CE. We know that it survived there after the fall of the Roman Empire (Mithraic festivals were still being held in Iran up until the 20th century), so one plausible explanation for the connection of Mithras and Baphomet is that when the Templars based themselves in the Middle East during the Crusades they stumbled upon, and were influenced by, a surviving cult of Mithras. Mithraism was a religion that was traditionally practised by soldiers, since Mithras was a deity of victory and conquest.
