RE: Santiago de Compostelo


If memory serves..
I think both have near identical Rosette windows.  Could someone confirm
I recall watching a History Channel program; which I have recorded that
showed a cathederal very similiar to Rosslyn from the outside.  The
film-doco is called the 'Templars of Marjorica.'
I remember how striking the simialrity was, and that it hit me very
strongly.  I made a mental note and tucked it away.
Tim, I am very pleased you raise the issue.
I will need to re-watch it verify.


And after all, Earl William's great-great-grandfather of the same name
died at the battle of Teba, fighting the Moors, so there was some family
tradition of interest in Spain.

What I wonder is whether, since the cathedral in Compostelo is a few
centuries older than Rosslyn Chapel, did Earl William find some useful
architectural or decorative ideas that he used in the Chapel?
