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 thing in common; you will never understand a single word of them.
The Voynich Manuscript is written in an unknown alphabet. Not a living soul knows what it means. During centuries top military code-breakers, linguists, historians and laymen have tried to decipher it, all failed. People have gone insane in their obsessions trying to figure it out. It dates back to the early 15th century. Enjoy the meticulous illustrations of botanical fantasies.
CODEX Serahinianus..What it lacks in any kind of meaningfulness, it returns in max psychedelic weird assness – and illustrative beauty. As The Voynich Manuscript it is written in Italy in an incomprehensible language with a made for the occasion set of characters.
Enough said, you can find detailed bios on the works many places on the internet, try Wikipedia or some of the dedicated forums. Download the books here. Please bear in mind that both works are more than 50 MB, they might take a while to download:
