PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: As a source of mystery, myth and legend Rosslyn stands unequalled even in the annals of a Celtic culture justly famous for its wealth of magical and spiritual fantasy. It has been a focus of attention for poets, artists, and story-tellers for centuries. It is perhaps because of this that it has until recently failed attract the attention of serious historians. Records are scanty; few family archives have survived the violent and dramatic history of Rosslyn Castle in their entirety, and the sculptures themselves have not been studied in depth. Studied with precision and detachment the building and its contents tell a very different story. The myths and legends themselves can provide a starting point for archival research that reaches far beyond present levels of factual knowledge. Interpreted with care, and in conjunction with archaeological evidence and expert opinion, myth can play a vital role in stimulating reasoned and proper speculation. That is being revealed by the many investigators adopting a rational approach to the enigmas of Rosslyn are already more intriguing than some of the incredible stories published in the past. Co-Author Tim Wallace-Murphy was born in Ireland and studied medicine at University College, Dublin. His first book, “The Mark of the Beast”, was written in collaboration with Trevor Ravenscroft. He is the author of “An Illustrated Guidebook to Rosslyn Chapel” (1993) and “The Templar Legacy and the Masonic Inheritance Within Rosslyn Chapel” (1994), both published by The Friends of Rosslyn. A popular and fluent speaker, Tim lectures on the Knights Templar, Rosslyn Chapel and the Sinclairs (founders of Rosslyn). Co-Author Marilyn Hopkins was born in Torquay, England. She spent ten years studying various forms of Christianity and esoteric spirituality and has contributed to seminars, talks and lectures including the recent Ecological seminar at Rosslyn organized by the Scottish Ecological Design Association. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: It is said that Rosslyn Chapel is the last resting place of the Holy Grail and that the fabulous treasure is buried in its secret vaults. This text is the story of this mysterious chapel in Scotland, taking the reader on a voyage of discovery. Tim Wallace-Murphy and Marilyn Hopkins shed valuable light on the origins and development of the belief systems of our modern world. The book is well worth reading. REVIEW: Rosslyn Chapel is renowned for its carvings, with curious pilgrims flocking there in their thousands. Built on the site of the Druidic oracle dedicated to Saturn, the guardian of secrets, even the name Roslin itself echoes the all-pervading theme of secrecy, for its translation as “ancient knowledge passed down the generations” comes from a time when ancient and heretical knowledge had to remain secret if one wished to survive. Is there any evidence in the history of the St. Clair family to confirm the validity of this translation? READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: If I were only allowed to recommend one book, “Rosslyn” would-have been the book I chose to review! I opened it, while contemplating which book I would sit down with, and suddenly realized I'd read twenty pages! This one will be a timeless treasure and a perfect gift for the Mason or Templar-buff. However you will be pleasantly surprised when you find substantial, historical discussion of Religions, Culture and myth vs. history. Rosslyn will cause many debates and many individual shifts in consciousness. This book is not for the easily-distressed fundamentalist. Of course, if you have not studied about religion, culture, society, etc., you will not understand this masterpiece of truth-seeking research, yet it may inspire you to delve more deeply. This work contains a concise chronology of the development of the religion of Christianity, with many references at the back of the book to continue your research, if you are inclined to seek the light. I found the writing style of this book to be very captivating and flowing, unlike some of the less-researched/more-embellished works on the market, which are not so articulately and poetically drafted. This book should be compared with the other important works of the genre, and I suggest looking-into the works of Graham Hancock. "Astrological Lore of All Ages”, by Elbert Benjamine will be handy to have around, while reading this one, as well. Don't pass Rosslyn up. If you do, you'll regret it later. REVIEW: Finally, someone manages to interpret Rosslyn, and to uncover and interpret a lot more than that. I can accept that a lot of critics will read this book and try to discount a lot of what is stated. But read it with an open mind and you might find something that has been missing - and I don't mean anything from the book. REVIEW: This is one of the books sold by Rosslyn Chapel bookstore; it is very good, and the "ancient" teachings about the Galactic alignments that can be very conducive to our enhanced consciousness are just recently corroborated in John Major Jenkins new book, “Galactic Alignment”. So, Rosslyn is one of the very good books on this part of the grail; it's just that the Inquisitors don't want you to think that! REVIEW: This book delves into the world of the Templars and the early Catholic Church, which, facts and myths aside, in itself is interesting. If you want to know more about the Templars, then this is a good book for you. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
