The cumbersome and baffling manuscript from the Middle Ages, according to one of many legends, is believed to be produced by a monk in a single night who sold his soul to the Devil himself.
According to the legend: A monk broke his monastic vows and was sentenced to be walled up alive (an execution method; e.g. the prisoner is being placed in a cave and having the exits covered with stones and is left to die from starvation or dehydration). To save himself, he promised to create a book in one year to honor the monastery forever, including all human knowledge. It quickly became apparent the grandiose task was impossible to complete alone, so he made a special prayer to Lucifer, asking him for help finishing his book in exchange for his soul. The Lucifer completed the manuscript, and the monk either added the Devil’s picture out of gratitude or Devil himself signed the work by adding these self-portraits.

On October 30, 1979, the body of Robert Boulin was found in a pond in the forest of Rambouillet in southern France. Boulin, a Gaullist politician and veteran of the French Resistance during World War II, had not been seen since the day before, when he had gone out to lunch with his son. His car and an empty container of barbiturates were found near his body. Inside the car were some letters declaring his intention to kill himself.
A note he wrote to police, dated the day of his death, was received a few days later. Boulin wrote, “I have decided to drown myself in a lake in the forest of Rambouillet, where I enjoyed horse-riding.”
