It’s always fun to decode secret messages. Especially if that secret message was written by a 17th-century nun who claimed to have had it dictated by the devil himself. Sounds like a scene from a movie, but it actually happened.
A coded letter that was written by a nun living in 17th-century Italy has finally been deciphered by scientists. This letter was claimed to have been dictated by the Devil himself and using a code breaking software we can now know what it says.
It’s been said that Sister Maria Crocifissa della Concezione woke up after fainting to find several letter she had penned in an unintelligible mix of ancient scripts. Along with others, Sister Maria believed that the letters were a scheme by Lucifer to convince her to turn away from God.
According to Indy100, in the 1960s, the monastery offered a month-long vacation to anyone who could translate the message.
For centuries no one could translate it. Until a software came along that could do something that humans simply could not.
Director of the Ludum Science Center, Daniele Abate, told the Times: “We heard about the software, which we believe is used by intelligence services for codebreaking”.
He continued, “We primed the software with ancient Greek, Arabic, the Runic alphabet de-scramble some of the letter and show that it really is devilish”.
