The Book No One Can Read Today
the Voynich Manuscript is a parchment codex of 22.5 x 16 cm, with well over 200 pages.
Ten words may have been decoded.
The Voynich Manuscript was first found in 1912 by a book dealer named Wilfrid Voynich.
Carbon dating has revealed that the manuscript dates from the first half of the fifteenth-century, but until now scholars have been unable to translate any of the words in its text.
Several theories have been proposed about it, including that is was a hoax created by Voynich or that it contained some type of mystical knowledge.
