Mundo Subteraneus, Athanasius Kirchner, Voynich Manuscript and Robert Brumbaugh

Athanasius  Kirchner a Jesuit scholar working in Rome published  Mundo Subteraneus  a publication which include a upside down map of Atlantis that is most famous ever drawn.

What made the book unique was was it’s minuscule  handwritten  text composed of alphabetic characters completely  indescribable.

Kirchner didn’t dare to pretend to have broken the misterios manuscript.

After Kirchner death the manuscript  was lost until 1912 when it was purchased  by an antique dealer Wilfrid Voynich. Byn1969 what is now as the Voynich  Manuscript made its way to Yale University.

There it fell into the hands of a philosophy  professor  named Robert Brumbaugh.

Robert Brumbaugh who died in 1992 was no a typical philosophy  professor. He worked as a code breaker in the US Army Signal Corps during World War II.

Brumbaugh  concluded that the text might have been a “treatise on the Elixir of Life”.


1513 Piri Rei map shows Atlantika in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.

1531 Orontius  Finaeus map show accurate depiction of Antarctica many centuries before it’s first recorded sighting in 1820. One must conclude that the Antarctic  continent was discovered  not by whalers and sealers of nineteenth  century .

South America appears to be drawn with more precision  before explorers began making ocean crossing  in 1492 that would be for the century that followed.
