The Guardian reports that noted occult scholar Stephen Skinner believes he has identified the author of the mysterious Voynich manuscript, a facsimile edition of which has recently been published. In part the Guardian story notes:
“One of the world’s most confounding literary mysteries may finally be, in part, solved: the author of the mysterious and as-yet untranslatable Voynich manuscript has been identified as a Jewish physician based in northern Italy, an expert in medieval manuscripts has claimed.
“The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated book printed on vellum written entirely in an indecipherable script, leaving scholars and code-breakers scratching their heads since it re-emerged a century ago.”
