This Hazardous Book Can't Be Read by Anyone on The Planet, and Here's a Strong Reason Why

I'm Ahamed, and I've worked in document control for a long time. He adores writing and has done freelance and blog work all over the web.

The Voynich Manuscript C.1420

For centuries, the Voynich Manuscript has remained a mystery to many brilliant minds. A foreign language is explained by an anonymous author, using invisible flora and images. What is it that makes it so unique on the planet? Many people are baffled.


It is thought to be an old code by some. Others believe it is a scam. The manuscripts are only known to be around 400 years old, and it's probable that they were created in northern Italy. The most essential aspect of it is that its magic is so strong that people's interest in it hasn't waned even after decades. The manuscripts' current history began in 1912. When a New York antiquarian purchased a large number of old manuscripts from an unknown source.

He did everything he could to keep his source a secret until he died, as required by the deal. He purchased them from several monks who worked at the Jzoot academy in Vila Majiragoa, near Frascari, Italy. They needed money to renovate their building, but they didn't want anyone to know how they got rid of the valuables they had on hand. Voynich pointed to a bizarre document with incomprehensible pictures and a text that he couldn't comprehend.

The book was accompanied by a letter written in Latin and dated 1665, stating that the book was thought to have been written by Roger Begun, a well-known medieval alchemist. Voynich concluded that the book held the scientist's encrypted alchemical notes and spent many years attempting to decrypt them. Determining the history of the unusual book as accurately as possible was a key aspect of the deciphering process.

The Original Manuscript

There are 116 pages in the manuscript. To this day, 104 of them have survived. The book is small, measuring approximately 15 by 22 centimeters. However, some of the sheets are much larger and have been folded in half or more. At 45 by 45 centimeters, one page is six times the size of the book. The writing and the graphics are both one-of-a-kinds. Until the book's text can be read, no one has ever seen anything quite like it. If the illustrations are at all tied to the text and aren't just decorative elements, they are the only indications of its meaning.


However, if we presume that the text and the photos are linked, we can tell you that it is a scientific book, with the majority of the content being on herbs. However, herbs make up roughly half of the book, thanks to additional parts. Each page has one or two plant pictures as well as a few words of explanatory text. The majority of these plants are unknown to current science, as are the sections on astronomy and cosmology.

They include depictions of stars, the sun, planets, and what appears to be an inside-out spiral galaxy. Many ideas concerning the book's extraterrestrial origins, or at least the knowledge buried within it, have been based on this galaxy image.

Come To The Biology Section

It features weird, probably anatomical pictures of blood vessels and arteries intermingled with naked female bath figures. This is most likely a description of the therapeutic baths. The pharmaceutical portion is followed by another minor section regarding herbs. The latter most likely specifies how to make some kind of portion container with certain marks; leaves and roots are illustrated, and the recipe section is at the conclusion.

To this day, it is certain that no one has been able to read the manuscript. The majority of today's decryption is carried out by a tiny but incredibly dedicated group of people on the internet. But, no matter how many explanations concerning the manuscript have already been proposed, scientists continue to come up with new ones, ranging from multilingual text to steganography. None of them, on the other hand, were successful in extracting even a single significant sentence from the document. As a result, all we can do now is wait.

It's possible that this enigma will never be answered, and that we don't need or even want to read or comprehend this book. It may be cursed, and reading it may result in negative consequences. It may seem unusual, yet there are books that are not recommended for reading since they are said to be gloomy and cursed.

One Such Book is Codex Gigas The Riddle of the Devil's Bible


According to legend, this book was written in one night. The monk had was to construct a text of such beauty and grandeur that it may be celebrated for generations in the Benedictine monastery of Podlozzis in Bohemia. Indeed, the Middle Ages were full of riddles and weird symbols, and the Codex Gigas was created to reflect that attitude.

This is the world's largest medieval manuscript, measuring 92 centimeters in height, 50 centimeters in breadth, and weighing 75 kilos. Herman the Recluse was most likely the author, and the colossal work was completed in 1229, taking him roughly 20 years to complete. The book is known as the Devil's Bible for two reasons. The first reason is that the image represents Lucifer in all of his ugliness. The second argument has to do with the manuscript's handwriting and images, which appear to be totally consistent across the 320 pages. This is the manuscript's only distinguishing trait. It's been 20 years in the making, and the monk's hand doesn't appear to have swayed once.

This truth is a puzzle in and of itself. It begs the question of how long it took to write, and how the monk's exhaustion and aging had no effect on his handwriting. It's thought to be the only copy of the Bible having a depiction of Satan. The devil in the photo, on the other hand, resembles a cartoon creature in a diaper rather than an incarnation of evil. But let us return to the fable in a gloomy cell of a Bohemian monastery.

The elders were urged to preserve the life of a monk whose awful misdeeds had been revealed. It was the black monks of the Benedictines order. They dressed in black, took a vow of celibacy and perfect obedience, and put themselves through self-flagellation and starving tests. There were, however, many who were faint of heart among them. They were harshly punished for their transgressions, and the sinful monks faced an even worse destiny. They had to be buried alive inside one of the monastery's walls.

The older monks stood firm in their decision. Then, all of a sudden, he pledged to write the world's largest book, which would contain the bible and all of mankind's knowledge. The Benedictine monastery would be glorified in such a book. He barely had one night to do it. He'd be executed if he didn't keep his word of sorrow. As a result, the monk went to work. He was handwriting the book in colored ink on animal skins, lavishly illustrated and penned in the style of the time. The monk realized he was out of time when the clock struck midnight. Despair drove him to pray, but not to God; instead, he prayed to Lucifer.

The monk included an image of the devil as a mark of thanks for the fallen one who appeared before him with the idea, and thus the devil completed the document. Codex Gigas is known as the devil's bible because of this remarkable picture. This is the story that has been passed down through the generations.


The Gigas codex held all of the Benedictine order's knowledge from the 13th century, as well as the whole text of the Bible. The manuscript begins with the Old Testament, then moves on to historical writings, Jewish antiquities, and Josephus' Jewish War from the first century A.D. Then there's Amalgam by Isidore of Seville, who lived in the 6th century in Spain and was canonized, the most popular encyclopedia of the Middle Ages.

The medicinal treatises follow mamaliga, followed by the new testament and instructions on repentance. The devil's drawing is followed by a description of a rite to drive away evil spirits, a chronicle of Prague's cosmology, and a calendar depicting local saints. Someone unknown ripped out ten pages from the text related to the Benedictine monastery's norms of life. All the friends, that's all for this article.
