Voynich Manuscript MS408
This is an intriguing hand-written illustrated velum manuscript that has been baffling experts since it first came to light. Named the Voynich Manuscript after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish rare book dealer who purchased it in 1912 from a Jesuit library near Rome.
Carbon dating in 2009 of the velum dates it to the early 15th century, and it is believed it was composed during the Italian Renaissance in Northern Italy. The author has never been revealed and experts for the past one hundred years have struggled to decipher its contents.
The manuscript contains images of unidentified plants, strange astrological symbols and even more curious, text in a strange code or language that even expert code-breakers cannot decipher.
The Voynich Manuscript clearly took many hours of painstaking work to create its pages so there must surely be a reason for it all. Many think it holds the answer to many of our world’s problems.
Many believe it is a type of pharmaceutical book outlining treatments for various health issues.
