Canadian activist Terry Fox in Toronto during his "Marathon of Hope" cross-Canada run, to raise money and awareness for cancer research. The spread of his cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi), and ultimately cost him his life, but his efforts resulted in a lasting, worldwide legacy. Photo by Gail Harvey. 1980.

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. 😈🧐☝️
