RE: The World's Most Mysterious Book
So because the OP can't use the search bar I have to use it for him?
Laziness get's a lazy response.

Meh. We've already figured out the key to that book. It's all BS. Evil_monster

The OP is perfectly capable of using the search bar; laziness has nothing to do with it. However, he was not a member when that other thread was posted, and this being a discussion board about atheism, it would not have occurred to him that there might already be a thread on the topic. The Voynich Manuscript, after all, is hardly a day-to-day topic of conversation.

RE: The World's Most Mysterious Book
Turns out that Yale's policy regarding the Voynich Manuscript is even more restrictive than I would have thought. Not only are "curiosity seekers" such as myself not allowed to see it, it's pretty tough even for academic folks doing legitimate research to examine it.



Dear Mr. [name],
Many thanks for your email. Although the Beinecke Library welcomes all intending to conduct scholarly research, the Voynich manuscript is part of its highly restricted collections. Patrons wishing to consult the manuscript in person must first seek the permission of the curator, instructions for which follow:

Given the manuscript's fragility, the large number of research requests, and the Beinecke Library's responsibility to preserve the manuscript intact for future generations, the Library has restricted access to the Voynich manuscript. The Beinecke Library has made high-resolution scans of the entire manuscript available for research, and these can be found at: http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/digital...ynich.html

Scholars requesting access to the original manuscript for their research should submit a proposal to the curator, Raymond Clemens, at:raymond.clemens@yale.edu. Proposals should contain a description of the project, explaining why access to the original is necessary, and should demonstrate the scholarly contribution which the research project will offer (e.g. plans for publication in a peer-reviewed journal or by a university press). The Beinecke will make the manuscript available for research only in exceptional circumstances, and researchers are encouraged to consult the scans and other scholarship on the manuscript before submitting a proposal.

I do hope this is helpful. Please contact us if you require further assistance.
Kind regards,
The Beinecke Library Public Services Staff
