Rosslyn’s Secret Codes in Stone

Mary Magdalene is said to be the patron saint of the Knights Templar, and numerous signs of her presence can be found in Scotland, including indications of her children and a Celtic Magdalene bloodline! Our recent journey to Britain began at Rosslyn Chapel, near Edinburgh, just days behind the ABC ‘Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci ‘documentary film crew, …all of us hot on the trail of discovery. This mysterious chapel, is often referred to as a ‘Bible in Stone’, or ‘Chapel of the Grail’’, perhaps built with the Chapel Perilous in mind, mirrors Jerusalem’s Temple of Solomon design. The building of Rosslyn was begun in 1446 and completed forty years later, by Sir William St. Clair, the third and last Prince of Orkney. Members of the Sinclair family claim to be descendants of the Davidic, Merovingian bloodline, through the children of Jesus and Magdalene.

 
The prolific symbolic carvings in Rosslyn, many of which relate to the Knights Templar, present a striking integration of both Christian and Pagan motifs. According to Karen Ralls former assistant curator of Rosslyn, in her book ‘The Templars and the Grail’, "Templar, Masonic, Rosicrucian and Christian symbolism….are woven throughout…In many ways, the carvings at Rosslyn Chapel are about the interplay of opposites and complements…light and dark, male and female, life and death."

According to Andrew Sinclair, member of the St. Clair/Sinclair clan, the name Rosslyn "….is said to derive from the old Scottish ROS-LIN or Rosy Stream, suggesting the blood of Christ." One of the persistent legends regarding Rosslyn is that the Holy Grail is buried within the Apprentice Pillar inside the chapel – possibly the same grail or cup which contained Christ’s blood and is said to have been carried by Joseph of Arimathea from Jerusalem, through France to Britain. Could this Grail brought by either Joseph of Arimathea, or the Templars out of the Holy Land, have finally ended up at Rosslyn?

Other sacred and precious items originally from Solomon’s Temple and Medieval Europe, brought north for safe-keeping (out of reach of the hands of the Europe’s ‘power brokers’) are said to have been placed at Rosslyn. "The Ark of the Covenant, the mummified head of Christ, the Holy Grail, lost scrolls from the Temple of Jerusalem, Templar Order treasures….a Black Madonna and more have been thought to lie within its vaults." Karen Ralls "The Templars and the Grail". (Some others say the Templars’ grail head is that of John the Baptist). The Sinclair family history also speaks of the Holy Rood, a piece of the original crucifixion cross, being carried to Rosslyn and buried within its vaults.
