The Book of God and Physics Intl

HarperCollins, 31 mar. 2010 - 347 páginas
In his search for truth, a young Jesuit joins a group that has for centuries been trying to decipher the secrets of a mysterious book known as the Voynich Manuscript. This manuscript has developed a global cult following of cryptographers, none of whom has been able to crack its code. Written in an unknown language and illustrated with enigmatic drawings that no one has been able to interpret, the work first surfaced in the court of Rudolf II of Bohemia. This same Bohemian court also gave refuge to two of the greatest, and most controversial, scientific minds of all time - famed Dane Tycho Brahe and German Johannes Kepler. These two astronomers together with their contemporaries Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo Galilei - were engaged in the most formidable dialogue in the history of science and laid the groundwork for nearly all of contemporary astronomy and physics.
