The Voynich Manuscript is the world’s
most secretive book. It’s dated to the
15th century and contains an unknown
writing system that even renowned
cryptographers have never deciphered.
Illustrations in the book suggest it may
cover topics like herbal remedies,
biology, astronomy, and the zodiac, but
no one knows for sure what it really is. Source
Forget conception or little homunculi, just make your babies in a forge.
But when Nature, sweet and compassionate, sees that envious Death and Corruption come together to put to destruction whatever they find within her forge, she continues always to hammer and forge and always to renew the individuals by means of new generation.
Book to accompany the 2012 exhibition Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe. It was the first exhibition to bring together a wide variety of works of art in diverse mediums that bear witness to the multiple aspects of the African presence in Europe in the Age of Exploration. The book includes European paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, books, and decorative objects, dating from around 1480 to around 1605, includes memorable images and riveting portraits of Africans, some of whose identities are known and others who remain anonymous.
The map, which dates to about 1491 and depicts the Earth’s surface
from the Atlantic in the west to Japan in the east, is dotted with
descriptions in Latin of various regions and peoples.
Perhaps the most interesting
revelations, say the researchers, concern southern Africa. By studying
visible river systems and legible place names, Van Duzer had previously
determined that Martellus based his depiction of the region on the
Egyptus N[MC1] ovelo [BL2] map,
which survives in three manuscripts of Ptolemy’s “Geography.” The
Egyptus Novelo used geographical data from native Africans, not European
explorations. It is thought that the map was based on information
shared by three Ethiopian delegates to the Council of Florence in 1441.
The new images show that the Martellus map’s depiction of southern
Africa extends further east than the known versions of the Egyptus
Novelo do, suggesting that the German cartographer was working from a
more complete version of the map that showed the eastern reaches of the
“It’s a seminal and tremendously important document of
African mapping by the people of Africa, in this case preserved by a
western source,” says Van Duzer.
