基本に戻ろう

It seems to me that many of the skilled cryptographers on this group have puzzled and worked over the Voynich now for many years and yet seem no nearer to cracking the code.

It also seems unlikely to me that someone in the 16th century could devise a code that could defeat 21st century methods.

But how else can we proceed ?

I know I must sound like an old bore, always coming back to the same theme, but it seems to me that we have not yet exhausted an approach based on seeing the context of the manuscript - and relating it to other similar material. There may not be a Rosetta stone for the Voynich, but there may be some manuscripts out there that might help us see the context of the Voynich. Recently Dana Scott seems to have spent many hours surfing the net looking for images and parallels in manuscripts. A valient effort, however, I suspect only 0.01 % or less of medieval manuscript material has been scanned and placed on web sites. We really need some primary research done in libraries and special collections of such material, or to tap the knowledge of someone who has studied such material in depth.
