‘Schicksalsbuch’ (Book of Destiny)

The outstanding ‘Geomantie’ parchment manuscript of about one hundred pages is more a combination of astrological/astronomical treatise, religious almanac and prediction calendar. About one half of it is directly copied from a manuscript known as the ‘Schicksalsbuch’ (Book of Destiny) which was produced in the 1490s and is itself an assemblage of various astrological works. The images below of moveable disks (volvelle) are from the ‘Schicksalsbuch’, which is much longer than the ‘Geomantie’ manuscript.

From the unparalleled BiblioOdyssey.
