“Berlinka” – decoded history of Europe in Kraków

In the so-called “Berlinka” collection in the Jagiellonian Library we found a number of medieval medical treatises in Italian. Most of these versions have never been published, first identified in our study. We aldo decoded a Spanish Guarani language textbook from the eighteenth century, written by a Jesuit missionary. Guarani is the language of the Indians of Latin America, still used in Paraguay “- said Dr. Piotr Tylus, who along with other researchers from the Jagiellonian University broke a fragment of “Berlinka” code.

“Berlinka” consists of about 500 thousand archival materials, including manuscripts of Boccaccio, Giordano Bruno, Martin Luther, scores of Mozart and Bach. It is a priceless treasure of European art and culture.
