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

Posted on | November 8, 2011 | 49 Comments

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

The Voynich Manuscript Illustrations

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:

    I do not refute the people that maybe voynich manuscript contains a meaning of sorts , but what if l these notions proves to be false??? That a mentally ill person had crafted all this just to entertain himself??

    Answering Chandramouli Saha

    Because in those days not everybody knew how to read and write, and not everybody could afford to buy parchment and colors.

    But above all if someone had the money to do so he would not write nonsense cover to cover across botanic, astrology and god knows what else.
    It’s not like now your grab pen and paper and start doodling.

    And a mentally ill person would definitely not acquire that kind of knowledge and wealth in those days, unlike today where the mentally ill is actually running countries.

    I find a wonderful description of a man. this man wanted to help women in klimax. This man also has humor drawing the woman as a goat when having menstruation. fantastic experience.
    woman disease. what looks like on them and emotional effect on homeopathy. this manuscript is the beginning of homoeopathy. I understand this manuscript and I have great respect from this man. Thank you

    This is a fertility manual written by a woman. Although back in the early fourteen hundreds it was illegal for a woman to read or write. The book explains on various kinds of plants, herbs, spices, and predator plants that can be used as medicine during pregnancy, or from falling ill during such tumultuous times.

    Menstruation or period cycles during body changes. From the drawings of what looks like the stars it shows the solstices, equinoxes, and seasons of the year along with the entire yearly cycle. Other drawings show women bathing using the roots of plants.

    Perhaps this is a representation on how to use or mix prepared plants together during their periods or pregnancy cycles before age forty. To put it simply this is nothing more but a medicinal pictograph for a woman who used the name Otto because as I mentioned before, women were barred or gagged from learning on how to read or write during the dark ages.

    Especially during the inquisition where Tomas Torquemada tortured, and killed millions of so called witches in the name of the church. The language is her own. Shorthand to be precise using various kinds of other languages such as Hebrew, Latin, and small examples of Aramaic. The time it took to write this book was probably between four to fifteen years starting from early teenage years and onward.

    The pictures are crudely drawn, which indicates a naïve eye for detail. But the overall effect is meant for just the author’s interpretation when using the manual for such instances for women only.

    The odd looking plants are most likely the authors way of explaining on how to mix certain plant properties together for maximum effect to ease a woman’s pain during menstruation or pregnancy or even illnesses, which would lead to back pain, leg pain, low breast milk, or when to bathe at certain times of the day through out the year.

    It is an allegorical representation of a woman who wanted to be a doctor but couldn’t because of the churches stronghold on women. This brought about another manual from man who used its descriptions, and explanations on how to spot, judge, and even execute possible witches. It was called The Malleus Maleficarum.

    This manual is not some sorcerer’s handbook nor is it from some mysterious Stonehenge druid ancestor or for that matter was it a scientists way of explaining the universe using plants as the reference point. It was just a female doctor’s manual to helping ease to what ails women the most. Growing up, growing older, getting pregnant, staying healthy until old age sets in.

    The rest falls into place once you look at each plant, and star map according to the months it represents in a calendar year along with the solstices, and equinoxes. Because women kept track of such information by listening to their own mothers, and grandmothers while becoming an adult.
