Jakob Bartsch / Bartschius / Barschius

Jakob Bartsch and Georgius Baresch/Bartsch/Barschius could not be one and the same. The first was born in 1599/1600 and died in 1632/1633, according to http://www.astro.uni-bonn.de/~pbrosche/persons/pers-index.html. The second attended Universitate Sapientiae Romanae (University 'La Sapienza') in Rome in 1605 and wrote a letter to Athanasius Kircher in 1637 and another in 1639, according to http://www.voynich.nu/letters.html.

The previous reference to 'uterus' and Kepler seems to be the location in the sky where a new star had been found at 4BC, although others say that it should have occurred at 2BC (http://home.t-online.de/home/Dr.Papke/messiah.htm: "The enigma of the Star of Bethlehem has now been solved. Latest research reveals it was a new star that suddenly appeared at the 'Throne of God' in the very womb of the ancient Babylonian constellation of the Virgin (ERUA) at 6:30 p.m. just after sunset on August 30 in 2 B.C." ... etc.
