Description

For those who wish to understand the famed 15th century Scottish Chapel, now restored and re-dedicated, and the many myths which have attached themselves to its unforgettable splendor, this guide uncovers Rosslyn Chapel’s true iconic value and profound spiritual significance. The Chapel has for centuries been the subject of ingenious speculation. It was designed by Sir William Sinclair in the 1440s.

Funds were put in place to support a priest and clergy whose task was to celebrate mass regularly and pray for Sir William and his family in perpetuity. In 1560, however, the Scottish Reformation intervened and the chapel declined. Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code brought it back into the public eye.
