Codex Gigas
A devil of a tome!

Grab your gloves and good luck charms as Blurry Photos dive into the Codex Gigas! Commonly called “The Devil’s Bible,” the Codex Gigas is a legendary medieval manuscript that’s huge, old, and… cursed? Flora and Stecco take a look at its interesting history as well as its contents and design. The real fun lies in the stories of its creation, however, and the picture of the devil that led to it’s nickname. Was it part of a dark pact, written in one night centuries ago? Listen to find out, and give yourself the added bonus of playing the drinking game of taking a drink whenever the boys come up with a new name for the devil. The winner of the Miss Cryptid Contest is also announced, as is the winner of the sweepstakes! And don’t forget to vote for Blurry Photos as best Science and Medicine podcast for the 2016 Podcast Awards! One vote per day (per email) until the 12th of June. Thanks everyone and enjoy!
