New Blog Post: The Voynich Has no Provenance

Post by proto57 »

I've written a new post for my blog, titled "The Voynich Has no Provenance".

Because, well... it doesn't, really.

From the article:

"There is no written evidence that can be used as provenance for the famous and enigmatic Voynich Manuscript. Although it is claimed that certain 17th century mentions of a manuscript are the Voynich, on close examination these fail to satisfy the most basic standards of proof that the work existed back then."

Rich.
