It is considered a Manuscript codex and dates to the early 15th century , possibly created in northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in Some pages are missing, but there are now about vellum pages, most with illustrations.
Voynich hence its moniker. It's currently kept at Yale University's Beinecke Library of rare books and manuscripts. There are so many competing theories about what the Voynich manuscript is—most likely a compendium of herbal remedies and astrological readings, based on the bits reliably decoded thus far—and so many claims to have deciphered the text, that it's practically its own subfield of medieval studies.
Both professional and amateur cryptographers including codebreakers in both World Wars have pored over the text, hoping to crack the puzzle. Gibbs claimed that he had figured out that the Voynich Manuscript was a women's health manual whose odd script was actually just a bunch of Latin abbreviations describing medicinal recipes.
He provided two lines of translation from the text to "prove" his point. Unfortunately, said the experts, his analysis was a mix of stuff we already knew and stuff he couldn't possibly prove. If they had simply sent to it to the Beinecke Library, they would have rebutted it in a heartbeat. Voynich among his books in Soho Square.
Latin was the preferred language of import. If true, that would make the Voynich manuscript the only known surviving example of such a proto-Romance language.
All of the letters are in lower case and there are no double consonants. It includes diphthong, triphthongs, quadriphthongs and even quintiphthongs for the abbreviation of phonetic components. It also includes some words and abbreviations in Latin. Cheshire This page shows two women with five children in a bath. Cheshire thinks the words describe different temperaments, and those words survive in Catalan and Portuguese.
Cheshire Fagin Davis naturally had strong opinions about this latest dubious claim, too, tweeting , "Sorry, folks, 'proto-Romance language' is not a thing. This is just more aspirational, circular, self-fulfilling nonsense. And she didn't mince words: As with most would-be Voynich interpreters, the logic of this proposal is circular and aspirational: he starts with a theory about what a particular series of glyphs might mean, usually because of the word's proximity to an image that he believes he can interpret.
He then investigates any number of medieval Romance-language dictionaries until he finds a word that seems to suit his theory. Then he argues that because he has found a Romance-language word that fits his hypothesis, his hypothesis must be right.
His "translations" from what is essentially gibberish, an amalgam of multiple languages, are themselves aspirational rather than being actual translations.
In addition, the fundamental underlying argument—that there is such a thing as one 'proto-Romance language'—is completely unsubstantiated and at odds with paleolinguistics.
Finally, his association of particular glyphs with particular Latin letters is equally unsubstantiated. His work has never received true peer review, and its publication in this particular journal is no sign of peer confidence. Share on Reddit UPDATE: Scholars have started to debunk these claims about the Voynich manuscript, noting that the translation "makes no sense" and that a lot of the so-called original findings were done by other researchers.
Read our article about the debunking here. Since its discovery in , the 15th century Voynich Manuscript has been a mystery and a cult phenomenon.
Full of handwriting in an unknown language or code, the book is heavily illustrated with weird pictures of alien plants, naked women, strange objects, and zodiac symbols. Now, history researcher and television writer Nicholas Gibbs appears to have cracked the code, discovering that the book is actually a guide to women's health that's mostly plagiarized from other guides of the era.
Because the manuscript has been entirely digitized by Yale's Beinecke Library , he could see tiny details in each page and pore over them at his leisure.
His experience with medieval Latin and familiarity with ancient medical guides allowed him to uncover the first clues. After looking at the so-called code for a while, Gibbs realized he was seeing a common form of medieval Latin abbreviations, often used in medical treatises about herbs. The text would have been very familiar to anyone at the time who was interested in medicine.
The mysterious medieval Voynich Manuscript is probably a women's health manual, according to history researcher Nicholas Gibbs. There are countless images of bathing women in the book because medieval and ancient physicians believed baths were the cure for many ills.
A lot of the book focuses on how to make medicines from herbs, and there are a number of pictures illustrating medicinal plants. Astrological images appear throughout the book too, mostly because medieval doctors thought the positions of the stars and planets could affect health.
Further study of the herbs and images in the book reminded Gibbs of other Latin medical texts.
