Arabic text has long been decoded by scholars, but this year the text of a 17th-century manuscript in the Ottoman library was decoded in the hope that other people could read it.
The Voynisch manuscript was the first printed text in Arabic in Europe and its decoded version, which is part of the collection of the University of Melbourne’s Library and Archaeological Museum, was published by the New York Times on Monday.
“We had the opportunity to go into this library and read this wonderful text,” said Katherine Bamber, a professor of Arabic at the University.
The Voynovisch manuscript, written in Arabic, is a translation of the Voynicaum, the first Latin text in Europe. “
The Voynish manuscript, which was first printed in 1622, was one of the first Arabic texts to appear in Europe, so we knew it had something to do with the Muslim conquest.”

The Arabic text of the text is one of three in the collection.
The other two were published by Oxford University Press in 2012.
“It’s a beautiful and beautiful text,” Ms Bamber said.
“There’s a lot of beautiful Arabic, and we thought, ‘What is this?’
And we thought of this text, and I just couldn’t stop smiling.”
Ms Bagger and her husband, Andrew, have been using the Voynovish manuscript to translate the text into a new version of Arabic for a few years.
“I’m quite pleased with how it turned out, and it’s the first of many,” Ms Brager said.
Ms Barger said the Voyny’s text is “quite beautiful”.
“The first time I read it, I was in a state of shock,” she said.
The text reads, “In the beginning, there was darkness, and there was a darkness, which we called darkness, until the day came that we knew that the light was the sun, and that it was the morning star, the sun of justice.”
“There was a day when the sun went down and all darkness was created, but that was the beginning of the day.
And the day that we are going to go to, it is the day of light, because that is the sun.”
The text was first published in 1608, and its date is the earliest date for which any Arabic text was printed.
“When we read the Voynsich, it just made us smile because it’s such a beautiful work of art,” Ms Tufan told ABC News.
“Because it is a beautiful book, I think we can all appreciate it and be inspired by it.””
