Codex Gigas (Giant Book) is the largest medieval manuscript in the world. It’s remarkable to look at, but the story of it’s origin is certainly a strange one: Legend has it, that in the middle ages a blasphemous monk was set to be executed by being encased inside a wall. In the hope of redeeming himself and escaping this harsh penalty, he vowed to create a huge book to glorify his religion, a book that would contain the entirety of human knowledge. He promised that in a year, the book would be complete. However, on the last night, he became sure that he could not complete this task alone, so he prayed to the Devil, asking him to help him finish the book in exchange for his soul. The devil completed the manuscript and the monk added the devil’s picture out of gratitude for his aid. Although this is just a legend, experts have revealed that the book is so massive, that it would have taken a staggering 5 years of non-stop writing to produce it. Given the fact that the monk only had 1 year, the story doesn’t quite add-up and remains an eerie mystery.
