Manes Verulamiani

Recommended Posts

We all know the importance of the number 177.

Indeed, 177 is the simple cipher of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

But 177 is also FRANCIS BACON (100) + MINERVA (77)

MINERVA/PALLAS ATHENA, called the Speare-shaker, was Francis Bacon's Muse.

Two days ago, I was thinking about the number 177 when I saw the Book "Manes Veruliamani" on my desk.

Then a thought came to my mind : "The number  177 must surely be concealed in Manes Veruliamani ! ".

My first question was  : "Where ?"

But this first question was quicky replaced by another one : "HOW ?"

Indeed, to find "where" the number 177 was hidden seemed impossible, but to find "HOW" seemed easier.

"If I was the editor of this book, how would I have concealed the number 177 in 32 Eulogies ?"

My first idea ? I would have used the Eulogies 17 and 7 to my best advantage !

Then, I decided to take a closer look to Eulogies 17 and 7.


Almost all the Eulogies begin with In Obitum meaning "On the Death".

These are the only two Eulogies of which the title begins with In eundem meaning "To the same".

Then I decided to explore this two eulogies.


Translation of Eulogy 17 by W.G.C. GUNDRY ( Manes Verulamiani - 1950)

Mr Gundry provides us with his analysis of this eulogy, and the link that can be made with "As you like it" Act 3 scene 3.

(33 = BACON simple cipher)





Notice that we are on the 216th page of the First Folio ( 216 = 6x6x6)

And for me, the 2nd interesting part of this Act 3 Scene 3 is concealed in acrostic a few lines further, on top of the right column...



TTT (The Triple Tau) = 3 x 19 = 57 = FRA. BACON (Simple cipher)

forehead can be seen as the 33rd word (33=BACON)

Or fore-head can be seen as the 33rd and 34th words (33+34=67=FRANCIS)

But I found something else in the Eulogy 17, something of first importance.

I don't know if someone already made this connection by the past.

There is, for me, a hidden reference to Odysseus by Homer, and more precisely, a reference to the beginning of Book II with the Councel of Ithaca.


The Eulogy 17  tells us that Francis Bacon is like the Godlike Telemachus holding his spear of bronze ,with the wonderous grace that Athena shed upon him.

The Eulogy 17 tells us that Francis Bacon is a Spear-shaker.


I had never read Odysseus, and I decided to read book I.

This is how I realised that the Spear of bronze holding by Telemachus at the beginning of Book II is most likely the Spear of Athena !


Now, if I am right , if the Eulogy 7 connects Francis Bacon to TELEMACHUS, I don't know if the following part was in the mind of the author of Eulogy 7, but the numerical value (simple cipher) of TELEMACHUS can be linked to the great work of Rob, Light-of-Truth, on the number 102 ...


(P.S : For me, 232 is the gematria of yehi'or , the Hebrew for "Let there be light.")

Yesterday, I learned that Alexander Pope translated Odysseus in 1725-1726.



I had no other choice than to take a look at the beginning of Book II ...



Here are some ideas ...


I think that KYD can be a reference to Thomas Kyd who was one of Francis Bacon's masks.


And finally ...


Francis Bacon, from his high dome himself descends in state.

Bright in his hand a pond'rous javelin shin'd.
