The Rosslyn Hoax?


We have just received confirmation that the long awaited book: ‘The Rosslyn Hoax?‘ is scheduled to be published later this year. The announcement was made at the London Book Fair on 7th March 2006.

Here’s the blurb:

The Rosslyn Hoax? – would you like to know the truth about Rosslyn Chapel? Since the publication of the novel “The Da Vinci Code” huge numbers of non-Masons have been asking questions and putting forward theories about Freemasonry – especially Freemasonry in Scotland, and its alleged connection with the Knights Templar, the St. Clair family and Rosslyn Chapel. This book is a product of the research undertaken to answer those thousands of questions. The results will surprise a lot of people.

Here are some of the things the author asks:


  • Have the public been the victims of a massive hoax?Are the Freemasons themselves the victims of an enormous conspiracy?
  • Has the meaning of the Kirkwall Scroll been hijacked for a particular purpose?
  • Is it true that Rosslyn Chapel has been physically changed to make it appear Masonic?
  • Who benefits, and why, from trying to cover it all up?

Robert L. D. Cooper is the Curator of the Grand Lodge of Scotland Museum and Library (Edinburgh) and is custodian of the oldest and most precious Masonic documents anywhere in the world. He is in the most privileged position to know ‘from the inside’ the truth about all the various theories regarding Rosslyn Chapel, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the St. Clair family. For the first time a Scottish Freemason, one pre-eminent in the field, speaks out. At last Scottish Freemasons themselves are being asked about Freemasonry, Rosslyn Chapel, the Knights Templar etc. and this book will provide many of the answers readers of, for example, ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ etc. have been seeking.
