Codex Gigas leaves the Czech Republic

Devil’s Bible, the famous unique piece from 13th century, made at Czech ground, is leaving again to Sweden, not to come back in this century. The last day of the exhibition was, as most of the previous days, sold out.. “During the half a year, the famous book was seen by 61 thousands people.” the speaker of the National Library Katerina Novakova said.

The almost 800 years old document because of its susceptibility to and for temperature and wetness changes allowed only 60 people by hour, so maximally 420 visitors a day. The book consists from the largest part of knowledge of western society of medieval ages.
