You're thinking of the Andreas Mueller hoax, I
guess. Do we have a year for it?

In any case, the Voynich MS was sent to Kircher
in 1666 by Marci, but was already owned by Baresch
in 1637. So who planned the hoax, if it was one?
Not Marci, for sure. Was Marci duped as well?
Was Kircher a good target for a hoax in 1637?

That's why I think this scenario doesn't make 
complete sense.
