Masonic Initiation?

Carving at the first window (from the south west) allegedly showing the introduction of a candidate into a Masonic Lodge.

When we first heard of the claim that the carving, shown above, was that of a candidate for Freemasonry being introduced to a Masonic Lodge all of us were very excited for this seemed to herald a breakthrough in the history of Scottish Freemasonry. We asked two Rosslyn Templars to investigate this discovery and to prepare a brief paper for publication here – individuals concerned retaining the right to publish a more extensive account of their investigations elsewhere should they so wish.
