This is the story of a how a little known manuscript in a Masonic Lodge in Kirkwall has become one of the most important historical documents of the Middle Ages. It is also the story of the Templars, who were its guardians, and of what happened to them after the Crusades. Although references to this famous order of military knights rarely appears in standard histories of the time, a great deal of information about them can be gleaned from other, more esoteric sources, such as sculpture and architecture. Suppressed by Philip of France out of greed, the Templars were gradually driven underground in more and more European countries. Yet they continued to exist, still guarding the knowledge and relics that they had gathered for the defence of the Holy Land. It is this that connects all this to Henry St Clair, Earl of Orkney and Grand Master of the Knights Templar and discoverer of America. All of these threads come together in one extraordinary scroll still in Kirkwall which revelas in full the secrets of the Knights Templar.

Interesting and well written. I got the impression the author really did not know just how much history his family made until he researched the book.

This is a review of the hardcover version, which has fewer pages than the newer paperback version. The title of this book is somewhat misleading. Less than ten percent of this book is about the Secret Scroll, mainly the last chapter. The earlier portions of the book are about the Templars, the Holy Grail, John the Baptist, the Templar idol, Mary Magdalene, the Jerusalem Temple, the crusades, a Sinclair Earl of Orkney sailing to the New World, the famous Rosslyn chapel of Scotland, further Sinclair family history, Sinclair connections to Freemasonry, and the Secret Scroll of Scottish Masonic origin. The best parts of the book, in a scholarly historical sense, are the two chapters about the Sinclair Earl of Orkney sailing to the New World. The earlier part of the book is less scholarly, being a mixture of history and legend and pseudo-history, filled with many questionable assertions, with zero footnotes or end notes to indicate his exact sources of his assertions, despite the author claiming to be an historian dealing in facts rather than speculation. However, each chapter has its own bibliography. And a significant portion of the book is based upon the author's own research and his own travel to sites of historical interest related to the book topics. The Holy Grail is a chalice linked to the Templars and associated Arthurian romances of the Holy Grail, which is linked to Templars and Crusaders, which in turn is linked to legends about Mary Magdalene sailing in the first century to the country now known as France. The Templars are linked to the Jerusalem Temple, which was not actually the Jewish Temple, which was destroyed in 70 AD, but in reality the Islamic Dome of the Rock built in Jerusalem in the seventh century, at or near the site of the earlier Jewish Temple. The Islamic octagonal Dome of the Rock is then linked to subsequent Templar octagonal or round churches or other Templar buildings, and the Templars are linked to Scotland, by the evidence of Templar grave stones and masons grave stones. The Jerusalem Temple and the Templars and masons are then linked to the famous Rosslyn stone chapel of Scotland, financed and designed and built by a Sinclair Lord of Rosslyn, which is then linked to later operative Masonry in Scotland, under the patronage of the Sinclair family, and subsequent speculative Freemasonry. The Secret Scroll is described, with words and photographs, as fifteenth century illustrated evidence of the early existence of speculative Freemasonry, with the date of the Secret Scroll reportedly proved by radiocarbon-14 testing. The Sinclair book contains several pages of glossy color and black and white photographs related to the text topics, but unfortunately poorly identified in relation to the text, and some of the images are too small, and should have been published in larger versions. Unfortunately, the book does not contain an index. This book is somewhat like a continuation of the subjects of two earlier books written by the same author, which I had previously read, many years ago. The author also continued his story in a later book written about Rosslyn chapel. In summary, this book is not quite as much scholarly history as the author claims, but more like many unproven assertions of a mixture of history and legend and pseudo-history.

The thesis of Sinclair (a decendent of the line of Templar Sinclairs of Rossyln Castle fame) is that there was a 'missing scroll' that was stolen by Carter from the tomb of Tutankhamun. Carter's admission of this came in an outburst in which he claimed that the scroll showed that the Jews were kicked out of Egypt in shame. Up to this part - the investigation, the book is a fantastic read and a good value buy for it's own sake. The next part however - Sinclair's 'guess' as to what the scroll might have said is disappointingly weak to the point of being suspicious, as it doesn't even begin to relate to anything slightly shameful. Sinclair has the Jews being kicked out of Egypt for nearly the same reasons that they claim they left of their own accord anyway and are the heros of the story. This fits neither with Carter's claim nor with the round of 'assassinations' of people who might have known of it's 'dangerous' contents, which Sinclair details in his book. The Old Testament is full of some very weird things - The Judean King Hezekiah "...brake in pieces the brazen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it" - Kings 18.4, What was really in the Ark of The Covenant : "Ye have born the tabernacle of your Moloch" - Amos 8.26, Was it more likely that the Jews were kicked out of 'civilised Egypt'in shame for being a tribe of serpent worshipping child sacrificers : "Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons though shalt give unto me", Ezekiel 20.25 : " I gave them also statutes that were not good and judgements whereby they should not live... that they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb". Sinclair, if you must speculate about the contents of a missing ancient scroll then make it match the claims of the people who have seen it, what is known already... and interesting.
