Devil's Bible left Prague

The one book, closed in a big and special hermetic box, left its homeland for at least another 100 years.

Very strict security regime was established during the transport. The Police had to ensure safety, so one of the most unique books in the world, Codex Gigas, would leave the Czech Republic in good order.

It was dispatched from Klementinum, Prague back to Swedish Royal Library in Stockholm. The transport was described by the speaker of the National Library Katerina Novakova: “Codex Gigas was moved to the airport and an army special has transported it back.”

From September 20th 2007 to 9th March 2008, Devil’s Bible in Prague was seen by 61 768 visitors, four publications were introduced, two documentary movies made and a feature film is being prepared.
