Over the past centuries, many experts have developed the impression that the mysterious Voynich manuscript that contains incomprehensible texts and strange illustrations, challenges everyone, who is trying to decipher and understand its mysterious meaning. 250 pages of the book are filled with texts made using unknown alphabet and drawings difficult for simple perception. These drawings depict a number of objects: female naked bodies, Medicinal herbs, symbols and zodiac signs. And although a medieval manuscript was discovered in 1912, however, to this day the old book didn’t allow the curtain to be lifted above the hidden her secrets. Stephen Wah, professor of applied linguistics at University of Bedfordshire (England) is also one of researchers of the mysterious manuscript. He argues that carefully having studied and analyzed the manuscript, it is able to interpret it previously unreadable content. Professor states that decrypted 14 characters and with their help read a few small Voynich texts. Decryption of these characters helped him match text with drawings depicting plants: coriander, hellebore and juniper. As well as a comparison of the written characters of the word “Taurus”, placed next to the illustration of the Pleiades (star clusters in the constellation Taurus). In his statement, Wach said: “Looking for a good example of an approach to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs, I decided to apply this method to the texts of the Voynich manuscript. And so as a manuscript has many illustrations of stars and plants with their names, I identified some of them with medieval manuscripts in Arabic and other languages. This and allowed me to start to decode more complex texts this manuscript. “Today the Voynich manuscript is in the library Yale University’s unique books. Experts have proven that It was written in central Europe in the 15th century. Some scholars suggest that the book is a picture composed of letters. Others are of the opinion that the manuscript texts are written in based on a real language, but using a complex cipher. This version also confirmed by a recent statistical study, published in the magazine “PLoS One”. Thanks to this study scientists concluded that the manuscript adheres to linguistic rules. Wach notes that for a complete understanding manuscripts still have a very long way to go. Therefore he calls on other linguists to join hacking work cipher code. At present, Wach believes the book is narrating about nature, and it is written in Middle Eastern or Asian languages.
