Overview

A masterpiece of art and knowledge, the Codex Gigas is believed the lifelong work of a Benedictine monk, Herman the Recluse. Part bible and part encyclopedia, his opus held everything known to be good in the thirteenth century world.
It also held a secret — five pages so terrible they were said to be able to change wars. Too heinous for man, the monks guarded the pages for centuries, but in the monastery's waning years, they were separated, hidden across Europe, and hoped forgotten.
In 1916, the British Army learned the location of a single page. Unable to believe the story nor dismiss the temptation, men were dispatched to recover the artifact from occupied France. They would soon discover, with good reason, the Codex had another name.
The Devil's Bible.
