Item Description...
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 reveals in full the secrets of the Knights Templar.

More of the fanciful Templar lore  Dec 2, 2006
Andrew Sinclair claims to be a trained historian (page ix of this book) but "The Secret Scroll" contains many of the irritatingly ubiquitous bits of disinformation about the Knights Templar, for example, that they preferred the octagonal floor plan for their churches (in fact, they built all kinds of structures), or that every typical medieval reliquiary in the shape of a human head must be an image of Baphomet, the mythical Templar idol. Following the same strand of fantastic pseudo-tradition, Sinclair attributes the genesis of some still existing structures to that military order, while actually there is no shred of evidence to support such assumptions (the comments on page 108-9 about the Eunate church, near Puente de Reina in Northern Spain, are a good example of this.) His "esoteric" interpretation of the decoration of the Rosslyn Chapel is quite fanciful as well - as it has been demonstrated several times already, its iconography can be very well explained in terms of the orthodox Christian art and belief.

On the whole, "The Secret Scroll" is shot through and through with factual errors and misleading statements. Their examples are too numerous to mention here, so just four instances must suffice. On page 18 Sinclair states that Justin Martyr was "the chief target" of Irenaeus in the latter's polemics against the Gnostics. In fact, Justin Martyr was the teacher and deeply respected master of Irenaeus's. Similarly, and on the same page, we find a very surprising statement that "Justin praised the heresies of Simon Magus" - a total nonsense. On the very next page (19),
Sinclair tells us that "The Tau Cross became the symbol of the first Military Order, for its patron saint Anthony had been crucified upon it." It is enough to consult any biography of St. Anthony the Hermit, whose name is connected with the tau cross, to find out that he had never been crucified.

An amusing error appears on page 63 where Sinclair writes about "the terrifying bearded head on a pole, said to have been brandished by Henry of Silesia as he led the Teutonic and Templar knights into battle against the Mongols." The point of departure for this misinterpretation can be only the well-known manuscript miniature that shows the Mongols laying siege to the town of Legnica while carrying on a lance the severed bearded head of Prince Henry II (also known as the Pious).

Although "The Secret Scroll" is not totally worthless, its mixture of (a little) fact and (a lot of) fantasy does not make it a recommended reading for anybody except the die-hard Holy-Blood-Holy-Grail enthusiasts. I give it two stars, mostly for readability and good quality pictures.
Andrew Sinclair Celebrates Gnosticism   Sep 5, 2005
Andrew Sinclair's work in this book, his third about the Knights Templar and the survival of their theology, has provoked
a wide range of "harumphing" from theologians who contuinuously wish that man and God always have an intermediary. Not only does Sinclar explain the living truth of the Gnostic tradition but also allows one to read between the lines about the results of Masonic practises historically, without revealing the secrets themselves. Take this as truth from me , a Member of the Masonic Order.

For those who want a good historical read, Sinclair provides that ,but for those who think that modern man needs an intermediary between himself and God, be prepared to consider that the supposed historical winners against the Templars were not all that victorious. This is good news indeed.

It is comforting to know that the quest for the Holy Grail is still very much alive and well. Thank you Mr. Sinclair and for those who are not afraid to bare one's breast to the points of the elements and God, pick up this book as a must read!!!
Knight's Templar Descendent 'White Washes' Ancient History  May 3, 2002
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.
