Synopsis

Interest in the Rosslyn Chapel, featured in The Da Vinci Code, has reached extraordinary proportions, with hundreds of thousands of visitors a year. This book is responding to that interest by offering the most authentic account of the building of the chapel yet published. John Ritchie, a journalist born in the village and whose family has been bound up with the chapel for generations, has teamed up with successful author Alan Butler to produce this definitive account. For the first time they introduce its presiding genius Sir Gilbert Haye, precursor of the Renaissance, Keeper of the Royal Library in France, and family tutor to the Earl, William Sinclair, who built the chapel. They tell the truth about the its relationship with freemasonry and European philosophy. They explain the meanings behind its fantastic carvings and the pillar which for 200 years has had its story hidden, until now. It is a journey through a secret library of stone, overturning previous understanding of the period. Butler and Ritchie show that the truth about the chapel is stranger than fiction.
