Devil’s Bible

45 minutes 7.7/10 based on 9 votes

At 165 pounds, and allegedly made from the skins of 160 donkeys, the Codex Gigas is the world’s largest and most mysterious medieval manuscript. Filled with satanic images and demonic spells, according to legend, the cursed text sprang from a doomed monk’s pact with the Devil.

Now, Nat Geo follows a team of scientists as they embark on an unprecedented quest to unravel the secrets behind the book’s darkened pages. Using ultra-violet fluorescence imaging, handwriting analysis and a re-creation of the text, forensic document experts attempt to uncover the cryptic truth behind this ancient Devil’s Bible.

    Im kind of surprised that they are not wearing gloves while they handle the book! Usually that’s important to avoid oils from our fingers causing problems!

    • Alice

      They have found that the chemicals that most gloves are made out of can be even more harmful to certain artifacts, such as books, than human hands.

  • awful_truth

    A good documentary, in no less that it exposes the hypocrisy of those who claim to be doing ‘god’s work’. In reality, evil is inequity, the exploitation and subjugation of others for personal gain. (greed – the love of money is the root of all evil)

    not bad.
