The Knights Templar and Rosslyn Chapel have recently been catapulted to Hollywood fame, with the knights' activities at the small Scottish town of Roslin proving to be a source of many conspiracy theories due to the chapel's alleged involvement in the holy grail legend. "The Rosslyn Templar" avoids well worn grail legend, instead providing new research concentrating on the symbolism of R.T. McPherson's 1836 painting, "Templar Knight at Roslin Chapel".McPherson's recently discovered painting is the earliest material evidence linking the Knights Templar to Rosslyn Chapel. Cowie presents an engaging discussion of the painting, the history of Freemasonry and the architecture of Rosslyn, opening up new artistic evidence for a connection between the Templars, Freemasons and Rosslyn. This beautifully produced book contains detailed photographs of the interior and exterior of the chapel making it appealing to academic enthusiasts and visitors to the chapel alike, especially as public photography has been banned in the building since 2007.
