At 165 pounds, and apparently from the skins of 160 asses, the Codex Gigas is the world’s largest and most mysterious medieval manuscript.

Full of Satanic and demonic images spells, according to legend, the text emerged from a bloody pact with the devil monk convicted. Now, Nat Geo follows a team of scientists who embark on an unprecedented quest to unravel the secrets behind the dark pages of the book. Using ultraviolet fluorescence imaging, analysis of writing and a re-creation of the text document forensic experts attempt to discover the truth behind the old Devil’s Secret Bible.

The Devil’s Bible is so great that it requires at least two people to carry. Once considered the eighth wonder of the world, the Codex Gigas extends three feet long and weighing one hundred and sixty-five pounds. It is the only book that brings the Old and New Testament with violent spells, holy.

The Codex Gigas contains a full page – just opposite the portrait of the devil – a heavenly city tower. Although no people can be seen in the Celestial City, is a symbol of hope and salvation, in contrast to the portrait of the devil on the opposite page.

The Codex Gigas mystical medical formulas in everything from the treatment of diseases such as fever and epilepsy to the solution of practical problems such as searching for a thief. The transfer from book to Prague in 2008 was a year of planning. It was insured for $ 15.1 million during the transfer. The Devil’s Bible has 600 pages, which is 310 sheets of parchment, all made of donkey skins.
