Re: Voynich -- Opening The Doors #2

Hello Rene,
   Yes, I agree the style of the Book Of Hours is suggestive of the
times. I think we can safely say the written manuscript of the Voynich
document is European and that the author has seen copies of the Book Of
Hours, especially since it was the most printed text of its time. I
would like to say that the individual who wrote this manuscript was
brought up and educated in a Christian/Renaissance world. I realize that
this can easily be disputed, but I am looking at high degrees of
probability here. Thank you again.
