  1. Hi CJ, Indeed, I had a thought for your work on the Four fold alphabet when I posted my comment. πŸ™‚ Here is the reference : https://francisbaconsociety.co.uk/baconiana-journals/baconiana-journals-2007-present/baconiana-vol1-no3/ The Four fold Alphabet was deduced from the fragment of the Abecedarium Novum Naturae (Baconiana. Or certain genuine remains of Sr. Francis Bacon- 1679).
  2. Regarding the "O,o,o,o" did someone already draw a parallel with Francis Bacon's Alphabet of Nature ? I suppose so. This is a fourfold alphabet based on a 24 Letter Alphabet , the first Inquisition being Alpha and the 24th inquisition Omega. Francis Bacon mentions the threefold Omega that is the 72nd inquisition (Meteors), and stops at the 78th inquisition that is the fourfold Zeta. The fourfold Omega would be the last (96th) inquisition of his fourfold Alphabet ... THE END !
  3. Here is a last thing ... ODARIUM also means "SONG" In the context, I wondered if it could be a reference to the "Song of the Swan". What is the Latin for "SWAN" ? OLOR For me, this is a reference to The Shepheardes Calender (1579).
  4. Hi Peethagoras , The turn of your question makes me think that you have an answer. πŸ™‚ And sorry but I am not sure to understand "the old meaning of ES". I am french, and my two-language capability shows deficiencies. πŸ˜… To give you an idea, this is thanks to one of your post that I learned the meaning of STY. Thus, I was unable to imagine that STAY was the anagram of A STY. And more recently, I learned the meaning of "snarl" . In french, TU ES means YOU ARE. We also have Γ¨s. But in this case, Cat got my tongue ! Regarding the number 49, for me this is the simple cipher of WIT. And 149 = FRANCIS BACON WIT
  5. Searching for symmetry, I think that they also concealed Artes (The Latin word for Arts) and I think that there is a last word hidden on the right, probably using the M of Martyr but my Latin is limited πŸ˜….
  6. Hi A Phoenix, I think that the Mystery is solved !!!😊 FALCO (the latin word for Falcon) PILUM (the latin word for Spear) Shakespeare coat of arms, cropped from larger image of Shakespeare's funerary monument https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shakespeare_coat_of_arms,_detail_of_funeral_monument.jpg User: Sicinius, CC BY-SA 4.0 <https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0>, via Wikimedia Commons
  7. Hi Kate, I don't think so. Just for fun, I try "o o o o" in opensourceshakespeare.org https://www.opensourceshakespeare.org/search/search-results.php Here is the result ... No 'o o o o' but " A Lord Chancellor with the purse and mace before him" in King Henry VIII. 😁 And regarding the passage in question, for what it's worth, here is what I saw, as I was listening their "1740" stuff. SOW - BACON WIT For me, Francis Bacon used the G as a C. Indeed, there is one "BACON" in acrostic in one page of COMEDIES (I do not remember the exact page) where the C is provided by "Cood Lord" (if I remember well) instead of "Good Lord". In any case, a letter C was printed instead of a letter G. And the fact is that the 3rd letter is G immel in Hebrew and G amma in Greek. The last Os is intriguing. Well spotted. In passing, just in case you missed it, I posted something interesting for you in "A Rose by any other word?" πŸ˜‰
  8. Thank you Eric ! πŸ™ I did not know the Nonsuch Palace. What an incredible Palace ! And he was destroyed because of gambling debts of its owner !?!😲 What a Nonsense end ! 😒
  9. WOW !!! Thank you Eric. You know me well ! πŸ™‚ Indeed, I like when things had come full circle. 😊 https://www.gutenberg.org/files/50143/50143-h/50143-h.htm
  10. Hi Peethagoras, What do I think ? Once again, I think that it is interesting ! πŸ™‚ Facing a new information, I am and will always be in the Team "Why not ?" or "What if ?" 😊. Indeed, I am aware that FRANCIS VERULAM = 153 What about the fact that "TOMBE" could hide "TO BE M"? Adding that TOMBE is the 33rd word by counting from "Stay Passenger" (with S+P = 33 simple cipher) with the following sentence "Stay Passenger, why goest thou by so fast" that is 33 words long, I think that it can be a possibility. Here are some fruits of my past research on the subject that I share for the first time. We all know the importance of the number 53. The fact is that from "Stay" to "Witt" there are 52 words, which means that "OBIIT" is the 53rd word. OBIIT = 53 simple cipher. ( OBIIT or TOBII ?) It also means that each word in this passage is related with number 53. Indeed, if "Stay" is the first word by counting from "Stay" to "Witt", this is the "52nd" word by counting from "witt" to "Stay", and so on for each word. The first and the last 1 + 52 = 2 + 51 = ... = 53. By counting from "Stay" the 20th word is "THIS" and the 33rd word is "TOMBE". "THIS TOMBE " 20 + 33 = 53 By counting from "witt" the 20th word is "TOMBE" and the 33rd word is "THIS". "THIS TOMBE" 33 + 20 = 53 The simple cipher of "THIS TOMBE" = 106 (53 + 53) https://archive.org/details/atalantafugiensh00maie/page/121/mode/2up Interestingly, the reverse cipher of "THIS TOMBE" is 119 that is the simple cipher of MEDIOCRIA FIRMA. And here is a last thought ... NOTICE THE FIVE CAPITAL LETTERS OF THE FIRST TWO LINES. NESTOR WAS GREEK. If we consider that the P of "PYLIUM" stands for the Greek letter P that is our Letter "R" then the 5 letters are : I, R , S, M , T, O This is the anagram of MORTIS, which makes sense here (the context is always important). But we can also made the word TIMOR. And here is, in my view, one solution to this riddle, a solution that should please Kate in regard to the Painting she chose for the cover of her great book. TIMOR MORTIS CONTURBAT ME (The fear of death disturbs me) "Stay Passenger, why goest thou by so fast ?" THE FEAR OF DEATH ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timor_mortis_conturbat_me#/media/File:San_JerΓ³nimo_en_su_estudio,_Colegiata_de_Osuna.jpg 16th-century portrait of Saint Jerome in his study, with Timor mortis conturbat me behind him.

  11. Hi Eric, Thank you. I totally agree with you, this is an incredible book. I most like the first Emblem at the beginning of each of the 4 parts. https://archive.org/details/archetypastvdiaq00hoef/page/n3/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/archetypastvdiaq00hoef/page/n29/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/archetypastvdiaq00hoef/page/n55/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/archetypastvdiaq00hoef/page/n81/mode/2up It seems to be about Time . Notice the wings on the first and last Emblems of this series. I wonder if the four parts represent the four seasons. Anyway, each part contains 13 Emblems : 1 + 12 like the 12 zodiac signs (Pars Prima) and the 12 hours (Pars Secunda) And here is something I did not take the time to share yesterday ... HOMO BULLA = 93 # I.C. And I like the results with the 26 letter Alphabet πŸ™‚ I think that this book hides more secrets. 4 Emblems ( 31 - 34 - 43 - 45) mentions an Aenigma (31+34+43+45 =153) Regarding Francis Bacon's Poem, I like the fact that the first stance contains ... 53 words ! πŸ™‚
  12. Hi Kate, I agree with you, there are similarities between these flourishing letters and the flourishes on the Holinshed and the Northumberland Manuscripts. But, despite the fact that Robert Dudley jr claimed the title of Duke of Northumberland, I would not be too prompt to conclude that there is a link between Robert Dudley jr and the manuscripts. Indeed, what you see on the maps of Dell'Arcano del Mare were common flourishing used in Italian Hand. https://pennavolans.com/the-italian-hand/ However, I think we could say that the flourishes on the Holinshed and the Northumberland Manuscripts derived from this type of flourishing in Italian Hand.
  13. Hi Rob and A Phoenix, Here is a little gift for the Groundhog day. I think that I found a second link to Minerva Britanna concealed by Francis Bacon on page 53 of HISTORIES. https://archive.org/details/archetypastvdiaq00hoef/page/n81/mode/2up VIVITUR INGENIO CAETERA MORTIS ERUNT I remind you that a reference to "Vivitur Ingenio caetera mortis erunt" can be found in The Shepheardes Calender published in 1579. Notice that Colins Emblem is missing for the month of DECEMBER (25 ?). But the meaning of the missing emblem is given ... I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END. Happy Groundhog Day !
  14. Hi Kate, I learned about the link between Robert Dudley senior and John Dee 5 or 6 years ago, at the beginning of my research, but I do not remember how. I learned about Robert Dudley junior more recently, thanks to a discussion (in one of your topics if I remember correctly) with Rob and CJ around John Smith and the Map of Virginia. My research led me to Dell'Arcano del Mare by Robert Dudley. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell'Arcano_del_Mare https://www.abebooks.com/Arcano-Mare-Dudley-Sir-Robert-Florence/22922149158/bd I decided to keep this information for later, having a lot of another projects to finish and not enough time to explore this path further at that time. Indeed, this is an interesting subject ! πŸ™‚
  15. Thank you Eric ! I am truly touched by Julie's kind words about my work.❀️ I will contact her this week-end to thank her personally. I am looking forward to discovering, through you, the fruits of her own research. Warm regards.
  16. Hi Peethagoras, The search engines of SirBacon.org and the B'Hive are useful tools. Your question about "The Kay Cipher" reminded me a great post by A Phoenix on the subject. Here is the link : Regarding the letter M and Bacon, I do not know what to say ... For me, the shape of the Letters M , W and the greek Ξ£ can be linked to the constellation Cassiopeia that is the Heavenly Queen. At the beginning of my research, I read (and kept in mind) that W.M. could be the acronym of Worshipful Master. Most recently, I realized that M.W. could be the acronym of Most Worshipul. Anyway, M(12) + W(21) = 33 = BACON To bring something new (I believe πŸ˜…) on the table, few weeks ago, working on my video for Bacon's Birthday, the research led me to the registration of King Lear by Nathaniel Butter the 26th of November 1607 and to this document ... https://shakespearedocumented.folger.edu/resource/document/stationers-register-entry-king-lear Being born the 27th of November, I threw a glance at the 27th of November 1607 and discovered another possible meaning of W.M. WM was the diminutive of ... WILLIAM! πŸ™‚
  17. Hi Peethagoras, Thanks to you for taking the time to explain in detail your methodology. Regarding your challenge and based on your way of thinking, I would say that you noticed two interesting "anagrams" of NESTOR : ROSE N.T. and SONET R SONET is the middle french word for SONNET. Here is an example in "Livret de folastries" by Ronsard. https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k10485259/f74 R is the 17th letter of the Tudor Alphabet. SONET R # SONNET 17 Then you took a look at Sonnet 17 and probably began to look for a correlation between letters or words and their placement in the Sonnet. This is probably how you realized that one of the verses contained the number of words corresponding to the number of the verse : Verse 10 : "Be ΕΏcorn'd, like old men of leΕΏΕΏe truth then tongue" (10 words) You also probably noticed that the 8th word was "Truth" and that this 10th verse of the Sonnet 17 was the 8th line of the page. And regarding Nestor and the Truth, let's take a look at Odysseus Book III https://www.poetryintranslation.com/PITBR/Greek/Odyssey3.php "Go straight to Nestor, now, to the tamer of horses: let us find what wisdom he keeps in his heart. Beg him yourself to speak the honest truth. He is truly wise and will not utter a lie." EDIT : Though yet heaven knows it is but as a tomb Which hides your life, and shows not half your parts. If I could write the beauty of your eyes, And in fresh numbers number all your graces, The age to come would say 'This poet lies; The 4th word of the 4th line of the page it the word "numbers" that is the 33rd word. (33 = BACON) Thus "number" is the 34th word and numbers number = 33 +34 = 67 (67=FRANCIS)
  18. Hi everyone, Here is a short video about something that should have been in "Mediocria firma or, Remembrance of a conceal'd Poet" one of the two videos I made for the special Baconiana of november 2023. It explains why I ended the video with a reference to the discovery of Julie Kemp in the Book of Gustavus Selenus. But as I did not find where to put this part in my video, I simply cut it. In the course of my research on Mediocria (74) and Mediocria firma (119), I found something on page 219 of HISTORY. (219 is the simple cipher of FRANCIS BACON - MEDIOCRIA FIRMA) If you watched my video, you can imagine how" joyfull" I was facing the "Remembrance of my father." 😊 https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/573/index.html%3Fzoom=1275.html BACON WIT So, here is the missing part of my video. I hope you will enjoy it. 219.mp4
  19. Hi Peethagoras, Your final result is interesting. However, when I attempt to deciphering a message, I am personally reluctant, when I play with numbers, to mix several ciphers like for example : I AM = 42 with I the Roman number 1, A = 1 simple cipher and M =40 (gematria of the Hebrew letter Mem) Thus, I AM is the answer to the ultimate question about life, the Universe, and everything.😊 This is why I am a bit embarrassed, facing FIVE T, to tell that FIVE T # F ET VI with F = 6 (simple cipher) and VI = 6 (Roman Number) And in this case why not F ET IV that leads us to Acts 13 : 10 or Acts 10 : 13 ? "and said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?" "And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat." Less glamourous ! πŸ™‚ Or why not Acts 13:35 ( F ET VI with F =6 and VI = 29) ? "Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption." READ IF THOU CANST Few months ago, thanks to a comment by CJ (RoyalCraftiness) I noticed something very interesting. By counting from IUDICIO, the 27th word (27 = 3^3) is "DEATH" and the 33rd word is "MONUMENT". By countiing from STAY, the 27th word is "DIDE" and the 33rd word is "TOMB". Interestingly enough, thanks to your post, I just realized that READ IF THOU CANST is the anagram of ... TO FRAUNCIS DEATH (with TO = 33 = BACON) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/91/Northumberland_manuscript_transcription_1904.png
  20. In the margin, we have a reference to Wisdom of Salomon 3:16 16. As for the children of adulterers, they shall not come to their perfection, and the seed of an unrighteous bed shall be rooted out. 17. For though they live long, yet shall they be nothing regarded: and their last age shall be without honour. With the following verse that complete the first sentence, it gives 16 + 17 = 33
  21. Thanks ! I will take a look at it tomorrow !
