Vaimanika Shastra

Vaimanika Shastra is a very strange illustrated book about ancient flying machines from Hindu India. While everything seems to be debunked and even the author admits that the entire content is based upon visions, the content is widely used to ignite theories about an golden ancient era in India where people build flying machines. The book […]

The Complete works of Nostradamus compilied in one PDF. 1 March 1555 the french scientist, doctor and astrologist Michel de Nostredam, better known these days as Nostradamus, sat down and wrote the foreword to his spectacular work Centuria. Centuria means ‘a hundred’, and it might refer to the span of years his prophecies reaches.  The foreword is […]

Easy Journey to other Planets

Easy Journey to other Planets is quite amusing and at the same time rather sad. It intends to document the power of Bhakti Yoga, but the entire basis is an unsubstantiated criticism of modern science. The publisher, the Hare Krishna Movement, still insists that NASA’s moon landing was a fake and that mans inspiration to […]

The Book of Soyga also known as Aldaraia sive Soyga vocor or Soyga: the book that kills was written in the 16th-century and apparently lost until it was found at the British Library in 1994.

Rohonc Codex

The Rohonc Codex is a illustrated, handwritten manuscript in some ways similar to the The Voynich Manuscript and other mysterious, encoded texts from the European Middle Ages. Not a single word has been decoded from the Rohonc Codex, though many have tried. Year-long studies have been made and experts in encryption have worked on the case. What […]

Geometrical Psychology or the Science of Representation

Geometrical Psychology or the Science of Representation is the result of lifelong studies by the independent spiritual thinker and mathematician Benjamin Betts. I have not read more than the foreword, but this is something different. Benjamin Betts understood evolution as the evolution of mans consciousness. He attempted to represent the successive stages evolution by means of symbolical mathematical forms. These forms represent […]

The Illuminated Sketchbook of Stephan Scriber

The Illuminated Sketchbook of Stephan Scriber anno 1494. This is a surprisingly well preserved sketchbook by Stephan Scriber, a monk from South-West Germany. This book is considered a playground for ideas for his work as illustrator. This gives an interesting insight into how ideas and layouts for illuminated manuscripts were tried out and skills developed in production of late-gothic […]

Bizarre Friday on Holybooks.com

These books are not related to the overall topic of this website, but you have been warned before, and I can see that books like the Voynich Manuscript, Codex Serahinianus and Gadsby are among the most downloaded. I know you like them, so […]

The author is unknown and there are many speculations about how it was written from sleeping mediums to plain materialization. The story itself […]

Bizarre Tuesday on HolyBooks.com: The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus

Longtime friends of HolyBooks.com will recognize that I have weakness for the more peculiar works and I post them here regardless of their spiritual attributes in admiration of human creativity. Today I have two of these goodies for you and if you are into this, you will not be disappointed. These two works have one […]

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh is hard to get a hold on. It starts out citing the author himself: “Enlightenment is just something unenlightened people made up,” and it goes on following a 70-year old zen-guru´s travel through USA and Mexico. This book is different, read it for fun or for the sake […]

Gadsby by Ernest Vincent Wright – 50.000 words without the letter “e”

This bizarre book, Gadsby, is a lipogram written in 1939 by the american Ernest Vincent Wright. The concept is the total absence of the letter “e” from all sentences on all pages. An article in the Oshkosh Daily in 1937 wrote that the manuscript was “amazingly smooth. No halting parts. A continuity of plot and almost classic clarity obtains.”  Wright […]
