The assassins of the Sub-prior of Montfaucon concealed his body in a grave, and in order to designate the spot, planted a young thorn-tree upon it.
The delusions on this subject had taken such a hold in Germany, that they were not altogether dispelled until a deputation had actually visited Aberdeen and found amongst the worthy and astonished brethren there no trace either of very ancient Templars or of Freemasonry.
Without a particle of historical evidence for its support, it has nevertheless exerted a powerful influence on the Masonic organization of even the present day.

The other monarchs of Europe followed the example of the King of France in abolishing the Order in their dominions; but, in a more merciful spirit, they refrained from inflicting capital punishment upon the Knights.
The construction of Rosslyn Chapel, which required contracting builders, thus presented a serious problem, in particular how to keep key elements of Templar knowledge secret, despite having to disclose and even teach many such secrets to the uninitiated builders. This genealogy provides a direct connection between the founder of Rosslyn Chapel and the original Order of the Temple of Solomon.
