The Collegiate Church of St Mathews

I have received the following reply to Filip Coppen's query about the
consecration and re-consecration of St Mathew's Church from Mrs
Judith Fisken, the former Curator of the Chapel there:

Rosslyn Chapel was dedicated 21st September 1450 as the The Collegiate 
Church of St Matthew. The Chapel was re-consecrated during its actual 
building, there is a Papal Bull issued to that effect.
The old church of St Matthew was a much smaller church and was already 
falling into ruin on commencement of the new one. The family had another 
small Chapel within Rosslyn Castle.
