Explore the world s most mysterious manuscript Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded decipherment, and its elaborate illustrations remain as baffling as they are beautiful. For the first time, this facsimile, complete with elaborate folding sect...

This ebook is the complete reproduction of the preserved Voynich Manuscript, formatted for high resolution color ebook reader displays. The Voynich manuscript, also known as "the world's most mysterious manuscript", is a work which dates to the early 15th century, possibly from northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in 1912. Much of the manuscript resembles herbal manuscripts of the time period, seeming to present illustrations and information about plants and their possible uses for medical purposes. However, most of the plants do not match known species, and the manuscript's script and language remain unknown and unreadable. Possibly some form o...

Our book is a translation of the first part of the Voynich manuscript. This manuscript is a wonderful 15th century manuscript on wove paper. It owes its name to Wilfrid Voynich, who bought it from the Jesuits in 1912 near Rome. This manuscript is currently in the library of Yale University. The beautiful illustrations and drawings are associated to a long text written in a coded alphabet that had never been deciphered. Evidently illustrations tell us that it is “ a medical” text. By searching for common words, found in electuaries, such as the Theriac: Snake, Valerian, Opium, as well as expressions used by apothecaries: wash - cut – filter- chop, or even the expression “as custom”, that were picked out in the text, we noticed that when written in Greek the alphabetic code could be immediately deciphered. This permitted the translation of the first pages of the manuscript, proposed in English and French, with a glossary giving the Voynich word and its Greek translation. The reader can now continue the laborious translation and discover with us the thoughts of on apothecary and physician of the 15th century, at least his secrete thoughts on biology the zodiac.

Tales from the Voynich Manuscript and The Island of Jan Mayen

Two independent stories of historical and religious intrigue are linked by the Voynich Manuscript, a centuries-old document and blueprint of advanced knowledge kept under wraps by religious authorities in the Vatican. The Vertebra of God details the fight of a Vatican priest who deciphered it, forced to flee Rome and go into hiding in Amsterdam, pursued for years by a shadowy, ruthless hitman with orders to kill him to prevent the knowledge in the manuscript becoming widespread. When word of the priest's whereabouts leaks out, the chase is on and the final battle is joined over a young student brought back to life by the priest. Set in Sicily, The Temple of One Thousand Crystals ranges from ...

The most mysterious manuscript

The Voynich “Roger Bacon” manuscript secrets—presumably magical or scien­tific and possibly containing a formula for an Elixir of Life—continue to defy deciphering efforts after almost four centuries, as this amazing history shows. Bought about the year 1586 by the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II, who had a keen interest in magic and sci­ence, the Voynich manuscript consists of some 200 pages, with many unusual anatomical, botanical, and astronomical illustrations. The work was thought to be that of Roger Bacon, the thirteenth-century English philosopher, who had a reputation for being a magician, and whom legend credited with discovery of an Elixir of Life. The writing, presumably i...

Voynich Manuscript Middle English

This Book is in full Color! Why has the VMS attracted so much attention from amateur and professional cryptographers, programmers, linguists and art historians? Truly I believe that at first glance by all it looks like the VMS text can be read. That in the moment of the first glance it looks simple, but once fully invested the person realizes the VMS is highly complex. For what it's worth, what I have found is the translation is impressive. Language frequencies have been applied to the VMS without finding any consistent language that fits a straight across translation. This has led some to believe the VMS is a hoax or an invented language. I believe the latter! What would cause so many failed attempts at decoding the VMS? The author would invent a language as a cipher of scrambled letters replacing words to numbers in the invented language and to further complicate it, make it look like a known language. What I propose is that the VMS glyphs have been strategically placed and that the letter values being numbers are of Middle English Gematria origin. This is known as ordinal gematria.
