The Book of Law of the Venerable Secret Order of the Eye

I noticed a post over at Slashdot, “Copiale Cipher Decoded“, about how the breaking of the Copiale Cipher has revealed the previously coded instruction documents for the ritual of an 18th century secret order “that apparently had a fascination with eye surgery and ophthalmology.” Of course, for those interested in such things as secret orders, order with secrets and the Golden Dawn cipher manuscripts, this should be interesting stuff indeed.

“during the ceremony he should not think further about the shells but the core even at the end those symbolic actions out of which none are without meaning”

You can read the english translation of the decoded German original on the research site. There’s also an article over at the New York Times, “How Revolutionary Tools Cracked a 1700s Code“.
