Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg. The Oera Linda Book, from a Manuscript of the Thirteenth Century. Free PDF, epub, Kindle ebook. The Oera Linda Book is a controversial manuscript, dated , from the Frisian region of the Netherlands. Today, it is.
There has also appeared in the " Deventer Couraut Though a series of twelve letters on the same subject. The writer evidently entered upon his task of criticism with a feeling of disbelief in the authen- book ticity of the that. I believe they are from the pen of Professor Vitringa. He obtained at the same time permission to make a copy of it for the benefit of the Friesland that it might be of great imSociety. All that was it known was had from generation to careful rests preservation. As the grandson was at that time barely ten years old.
From a Manuscript of the Thirteenth Century first came to the attention of scholars in the mid nineteenth century, and the controversy it caused is still sending out ripples today.
Originally in an antiquated Old Frisian, a Germanic language in use for almost a millennium, the unusual manuscript was translated into English by William R. Sandbach and it contained what seemed to be stories of historical and religious import. They spanned a period that covered from around BC to AD. After an initial honeymoon period of widespread acceptance the controversy surrounding the work began to increase and to this day a lively debate about the source of the text exists.
The identity of the original author is shrouded in mystery along with the design and purpose of the work. Many believe that the work may even be the creation of Cornelis Over de Linden, a Dutch man, in collaboration with his associates. A crucial question for every reader will undoubtedly be whether this book was created by a writer seeking to record sense or court sensation.
While that question is one that each reader must answer for themselves as they assess its merits there is no doubt that the alternative history of Europe as a matriarchy under an unfamiliar association of Gods is one which provokes thought, its use by the Nazi party as a prop for their occultism in particular leaves one driven to investigate.
In old writings the ink is very black or brown; but while there has been more writing since the thirteenth century, the colour of the ink is Often grey or yellowish, and sometimes quite pale, showing that it contains iron.
All this affords convincing proof that the manuscript before us belongs to the middle of the thirteenth century, written with clear black letters between fine lines carefully traced with lead. The colour of the ink shows decidedly that it does not contain iron. By these evidences the date given, , is satisfactorily proved, and it is impossible to assign any later date.
