Roslin Chapel needs to be sensible, says high-ish profile bod

Dr Yeoman said: "William Sinclair built this beautiful church for the saying and the hearing of Mass.

"He built it for his soul and the souls of his family, yet it has been taken over by a rabble of conspiracy theories, many of them anti-Catholic and absolutely ludicrous.

"The level of misunderstanding and ignorance you need to think this is some sort of pagan, occult conspiracy is huge.

"It is like a biologist being faced by people who think you could actually get all the animals on Noah's Ark.

"There needs to be some sort of proper interpretation telling people that this is a medieval Catholic church, and telling people more about Scottish medieval piety.

Well, apart from the Noah's Ark thing (I'm not saying anything one way or the other; I'd have to think about it) - hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!

Not that it'll have any effect, but.
