Re: VMs: MS408 Character Development
I'd like to summarize a possible VMs scenario based on what Maurizio has said.
In our early Renaissance time frame, the "medieval Gothic" or *littera moderna* style had run its course and had faily recently had a theory articulated. The new "humanist" or *littera antiqua* style, with its thiner and more cursive strokes, had also made its appearance and had been adopted in the more innovative countries, including northern Italy. The VMs author thus combined the stroke decomposition of the older script and the stylistic features of the newer script when she invented the Voynich script.
Does this make sense, Maurizio? Anyone else?
