A Rosslyn Treasury

A Rosslyn Treasury: Stories and Legends from Rosslyn Chapel [Paperback] 

Rosslyn Chapel has captured the imagination of many in recent years and has long been a place of pilgrimage for people with widely differing interests, whether historical, architectural or spiritual.

This extraordinary building, which dates from the fifteenth century, is filled with eloquent carvings that illustrate biblical, historical and legendary tales – stories from the beginnings of the world, ancient Egypt, the Holy Land, Celtic myth and Scottish history. In ‘A Rosslyn Treasury’ Peter Snow gathers these ancient tales and brings them to life once more.

“Peter Snow opens up the spiritual treasury of Rosslyn as a medieval storybook for modern times. Eschewing pseudo history, he marries the stories and the symbols to delight and inspire.”
