北イタリア、1421年

In addition, experts at the McCrone Research Institute in Chicago determined that the ink was not added in a later period. The text was likely written in Northern Italy.

If the VMs originated in northern Italy, then Latin, an Italian dialect, or a French dialect would be good candidates for the underlying language. And all of these are Romance languages. All that should help with statistical analysis.

Incidentally, even at that time French was the lingua franca of the European upper classes; Marco Polo wrote his story in French.

もし当たりなら、中世ヨーロッパ、書かれた言語はラテン語、イタリア語、フランス語(およびそれらの方言)か。

お城の絵

The small castle of f86r6 is probably just a fantasy castle, but the components are very much of the style of Piemonte and surroundings, in N.Italy. There are more buildings drawn on this page, but also a volcano which has nothing to do with N.Italy. Now Southern Italy has at least three famous ones....

似ている場所があるらしい。

Have you seen pictures of Fenis castle in the Aosta valley, N.Italy? If I recall correctly, this has at least one round tower. The nearby one of St.Pierre even has a church tower which looks like the one in the Voynich MS.

If anything, this castle confirms the N. Italian provenance of the Voynich MS. It does not at all have to represent a real existing castle. These were sometimes used to symbolise 'Earth'.
