Prachtig om te bekijken!
Klik op de foto en bekijk hoe men vroeger tekende, frappant detail wel, wat doet die centaur op een tekening?
Bestonden ze echt? Edgar Cayce zei ooit van wel…(Atlantis! Hoelang geleden? Misschien wel uit de tijd waar ENKI op aarde kwam en hierbij idem met DNA prutste met mens en dier(omdat zij dat konden nml lees geschiedenis categorie op deze website)…dan is dit script nog ouder dan men denkt…)

The Oldest Illustrated Book of Shadows on Herbal Remedies

We happily present you now the ‘Cotton MS Vitellius C III’. A 1.000-year-old illustrated manual, kinda like a Book of Shadows of the Herbal Witch. This manuscript (Cotton MS Vitellius C III) is the only surviving illustrated Old English herbal, or book describing plants and their uses. (There are other much older but unfortunately non-illustrated manuscripts) Translated from Latin to Old English, it gives details on almost everything – herbal magic related topics. Thanks to the British Library it has now been digitalised and is available for everyone to explore the Wonders of Herbal Magic.
