The Codex Gigas is the largest extant medieval manuscript in the world. It is also known as the Devil's Bible. In July 1648, during the final clashes of the Thirty Years’ War, the Swedish army looted the city of Prague. Among the treasures they stole and brought with them. The Devil’s Bible is 36 inches tall, 20 inches wide, 8.7 inches thick and weighs 165 lbs. The Devil’s Bible has been given its name because of a full-size portrait of the Devil. 😈🧐☝️
