Fw: [rosslyntemplar] Fw: Rosslyn Chapel

Can anyone shed any light on the post from another list quoted below???  I
try to follow happenings at the chapel and have heard nothing about any new
endeavors as outlined below.  Could this be a confused re hashing of the
original scans Andrew Sinclair commissioned?
