A manuscript deciphered
October 3, 2011 4:11 AM Subscribe
The “Copiale Cipher” is a 105 pages manuscript containing all in all around 75 000 characters. Beautifully bound in green and gold brocade paper, written on high quality paper with two different watermarks, the manuscript can be dated back to 1760-1780. [...] the manuscript is completely encoded.
Now, three researchers, Kevin Knight, Beáta Megyesi and Christiane Schaefer, have deciphered the manuscript and published a paper on it. They discovered a German text related to a secret society called, apparently, the “oculist order.” Much more detail and the full paper (PDF!) are available from the link in the quotation.
