Codex Gigas: Inside the Mysterious ‘Devil’s Bible’

The bible shown here is three feet tall and weighs 165 pounds. It’s made of the skins of 160 animals. The handwriting throughout the Codex Gigas is consistent, leading experts to believe it was hand written by a single 13th century Benedictine monk, including the illustrations. That feat would have taken 30 years, even if he worked every day. But this book is called the “Devil’s Bible” for a reason. Read about the Codex Gigas and the legend that grew up around the mysterious text at Urban Ghosts.
