Description:

Containing many illustrations, diagrams, and black and white and full colour photographs, this comprehensive study of the Rosslyn Chapel is a must-have companion for any visitor to the site or those with an interest in the Scottish religious sensibility. This book shows that the chapel is first and foremost a Christian building, constructed in the traditions of the pre-Reformation Church for the celebration in word, gesture and music of the Divine Office and of the ultimate sacrifice Jesus Christ suffered on his cross for the salvation of the human race. The stunning beauty of the chapel, its unexpected delicacy and the uninhibited humour of its stone carvings, which have drawn visitors in such avid numbers from all over the world, are a tribute to the honestly and validity of the religious experience to be found within its ancient walls, in a breathtaking setting of valley and river that is older than time.
