Have you heard of the ‘ Voynich manuscript?


Staff member
I had no idea and had never heard of this until I read about it just now in a book

“The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown, possibly meaningless writing system. The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century, and it may have been composed in Italy during the Italian Renaissance.”

There have been so many theories by linguists, code breakers and other experts on what this language is, but while looking at some pages from this manuscript, I couldn’t help but notice its slight similarity to some Assyrian fonts we use. Take a look and let me know if you see the same thing?

BTW, although there have been many theories on what language this is, this research makes the most sense:

A 15th-century manuscript described as ‘the world’s most mysterious’ – and showing strange, ‘alien’ plant species – has finally begun reveal its secrets.

British computer scientists used statisic translation software to unravel the first sentence of the Voynich Manuscript, which is written in an unknown language and script.

It has defied dozens of attempts to decode it.

Researchers led by Greg Kondrak of the University of Alberta now believe it’s written in Hebrew, in a code which involves removing vowels and shuffling consonants.

The Bletchley Park team who deciphered the Nazi Enigma code tried and failed to decipher the Voynich manuscript.“
