Author of Mysterious Voynich Manuscript Was Italian Jew, Says Scholar - The Guardian

Many of our readers are likely familiar with the Voynich manucript.

Scholar Steven Skinner believes he has solved one of the codex's greatest mysteries, i.e where did it come from? His research indicates a creator of Italian Jewish origin, based on an analysis of illustrations and an absence of Christian iconography. Next mystery up: Amelia Earhart Captured and Killed?
