  • The Voynich Manuscript

    There has perhaps been a breakthrough in the translation of the cryptic and enigmatic 15th Century “Voynich Manuscript” discovered in an Italian Monastery in 1912. The language is still uncertain, but it looks increasingly probable that it’s some kind of treatise on nature which may also cover the use of plants and botanical materials for medicinal and other purposes.
    Professor Bax believes the language might be Near Eastern or Asian. Previous researchers such as Dr Tucker had identified a fair number of the plants illustrated in the manuscript as indigenous to the southern parts of North America and northern Meso-America. He suggested it might have been written in a variant of the Nahuatl language, which originated from the Aztecs in Central Mexico.

    Thanks Roger, It will be interesting to see the end result.
    Hopefully someone will decipher the rest of the text some day.
