There are many theories, but no one really knows why Roslin Chapel has the name “Roslin.” The Da Vinci Code says it comes from the Rose Line meridian. There are many other theories but only the true Kabbalists know the truth.
And here it is:
Kabbalists use numerical values to encode words to conceal ideas.
In Hebrew, the numerical value of Jerusalem and Roslin are identical. Both are 596. In fact, Roslin IS the word Jerusalem with just two letter changes in order to derive the same numerical value.
First you drop the Hebrew letter “yod” from Jerusalem. Wasn’t that easy?
Now you change the final letter “mem” to a “nun”.
That’s the quickest way to get the same numerical value of 596.
And that gives you Roslin in Hebrew.
A centuries old mystery and secret is resolved. Just like that!
