Encoded passage





The 220 lines in the 55 verses numbered



I don’t know how helpful it will be but in order to assist anyone who feels that they may be able to advance the work I’ve done so far, limited as it is, I have reproduced copies of the relevant pages from chapter 55 of Apologia Poetica and numbered all of the lines including the four blank ones. I have drawn red arrows to identify where they are, and included them in the line count and you will see that there are four. Using the numbers it should be possible to identify, firstly the particular line and then the position of the letter or space.

To do this one must first find out how to ‘read’ the bible references. I haven’t given up on believing I can do this, but putting this on the internet seems a good way to bring what I have done so far to people’s attention and perhaps it will catch the eye of a better code-breaker than I. Maybe he or she can break the log jam and reveal the message Bessler was so determined to leave us, but which he was equally determined should not be revealed too soon. Almost 300 years have passed and I think its time for the message to be read.

Anyway within these eight pages are contained both the bible references as well as the 54 stanzas (plus the four blank lines) which conceal the secret message. The encoded part ends on the last page with the last word ‘Ende’.

They claim ownership of the copyright to all images on the site. However, I have amended the images in question to demonstrate some features of my research and posted them here. I believe that such usage is permitted under the ‘fair use’ or ‘fair dealing’ principle included in all copyrighted documents.

Fair use, a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work, is a doctrine in United States copyright law that allows limited use of copyrighted material without requiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. It provides for the legal, non-licensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author's work under a four-factor balancing test. The term fair use originated in the United States. A similar principle, fair dealing, exists in some other common law jurisdictions. Fair dealing is a term used to describe some limited activities that are allowed without infringing copyright. Civil law jurisdictions have other limitations and exceptions to copyright.”  ; < < --> <
