BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-02

This is the only Black & White Sunday this month, and I decided that it should be Traces of the Past. Last summer I was lucky to visit, if only briefly, beautiful Rosslyn Chapel located in the village of  Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland. Once a place of Catholic worship, after the Scottish Reformation, Roman Catholic worship in the chapel was brought to an end, and the chapel was closed to public worship until 1861, when it was opened again as a place of worship according to the rites of the Scottish Episcopal Church, a member church of the Anglican Communion.

Since the 1980’s the chapel has been a subject of many speculative theories concerning a connection of  Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail. It was prominently featured in the 2003 bestselling novel  The  Da Vinci Code and its film adaptation. Today it is a privately owned working church where services are held on Sundays and weddings and baptisms are reserved for the members of the Rosslyn Chapel congregation. Read more…

I hope you will enjoy this theme again. Your traces of the past don’t have to include old architecture or planetary famous sites; I would be very glad to see your alternative take on the theme – maybe some traces from your own past… 

Don’t need to rush with your submissions….  The deadline is in two weeks.

  2. North American is not rich with ancient places. There are some, of course, but not necessarily where I can easily reach them. I love your beautiful old cathedrals and castles, but “old” in the U.S. is a couple of hundred years. I remember living in Jerusalem when “new” meant “post 1500,” so I’m sensitive to the difference between REALLY old and old for these parts 😀
