Templar Carving at Rosslyn Chapel

1 April 2010 3 Comments

This carving, found at Rosslyn Chapel appears to depict two riders on a single horse – an image used on the Templar seal. As such, the carving has been used by many authors to prove a Templar connection to the Scottish Chapel.

However, if the second figure is actually on the horse, it is riding in a peculiar manner. But then logic has never stood in the way of a good speculative theory.

The reality of the matter is that the second figue is standing behind the knight on the horse. What is being passed off as the second rider’s leg is actually the tail of the horse.

    I agree the monk is behind the knight. But doesn’t the link between Knights and Monks bring us back to the knights Templar?
    Now people may dislike the idea but the book of stone we call Rosslyn chapel show clearly the links to the Templars later called Freemasons.
