Re: Rosslyn Secrets Revealed
Bruce: I'm not sure if this is what you are referring to, but last week, at
Freemasonry Hall in Edinburgh, I purchased a book, "An Account of the
Chapel of Roslin 1778" which has recently been published. It is a reprint
of a book published in 1778 from a "pirated copy" of one published in 1774
by the Episcopalian Bishop of Caithness, Dr. Robert Forbes (1708-1775), who
dedicated it to William St. Clair of Rosslyn.
This book is a very detailed description of the chapel as it appeared at
that time; however, it makes no reference at all to the crypts or what may
or may not be contained therein.
Looking for light.
