The Devil's Bible
The book's story is more than just history, however, According to legend, the book was written by a monk who broke his vows. As a sentence for this unspeakable transgression, he was walled up allive within his monastery in the modern day Czech Republic. The monk was desperate and pleaded for help. He offered to write a book containing all the world's knowledge if he could be freed from his prison. In his desperation, the monk plead with the devil to help him. The devil answered and gave the monk The Devil's Bible, otherwise know as the Codex Gigas. The large painting of the devil on 269 is said to be an homage to the devil.
