Item description for El Manuscrito Voynich/ the Voynich Manuscript (Ensayo Historico) by Marcelo Dos Santos...

The Voynich Manuscript represents Western History's biggest and most disconcerting literary puzzle. Written in an incomprehensible code, it is the only medieval manuscript on earth that hasn't been deciphered to this day. Analyzed during the Renaissance, the manuscript was lost for many centuries until it was rediscovered in the early twentieth century. All known techniques have been used to try and extract its secrets, but the Voynich Manuscript remains immune. The author leads us through a surprising and passionate journey beginning in the Middle Ages, where we are accomplices to the extraordinary figures that have tried to discover the mystery behind this fascinating work. Description in Spanish: El Manuscrito Voynich representa el mayor y ms desconcertante acertijo literario de la historia. Se trata del nico manuscrito medieval no descifrado que queda en el planeta. Est escrito en un cdigo incomprensible, cuya clave no ha podido ser descubierta ni siquiera por los criptgrafos militares que rompieron los cdigos alemanes y japoneses en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sus pginas estn cubiertas de ilustraciones de mujeres desnudas, plantas inexistentes y constelaciones desconocidas para la astronoma. Analizado ya en el Renacimiento, el extrao libro cifrado desapareci durante siglos hasta ser redescubierto a principios del siglo XX. Se han aplicado con l todas las tcnicas posibles a fin de arrancarle sus secretos, pero el Manuscrito Voynich aparenta ser inmune a los esfuerzos de los estudiosos. Marcelo Dos Santos nos conduce por un largo, apasionante y sorprendente periplo histrico que se remonta hasta la Edad Media, nos devela los extraordinarios personajes que se vieron involucrados con el libro --desde el emperador Rodolfo II, hasta el alquimista de la corte isabelina John Dee, el farsante Edward Kelley o el mismsimo Leonardo Da Vinci-, nos presenta los intentos efectuados para extraer sus misterios y analiza las teoras antiguas y modernas acerca de su posible origen, su desconocido autor y sus asombrosos pero inaccesibles contenidos.
