The Petrarch Code

The Petrarch Code is a very similar idea to "The Da Vinci Code", except it is a New Testament bible code. I have decoded major portions of all four Gospels. It turns out to be books of fourteenth century European history, especially of the French and English royalty and of the Avignon papacy. Some of this fourteenth century history also has to do with the Low Countries, Spain, and Italy.

The books of the New Testament were really written in the later part of the fourteenth century, not some 2000 years ago! The New Testament was written between 1374 and 1382 by John Wycliffe, the reformer of the church, and Francesco Petrarch, the famous Italian poet . It was written in English, not Greek nor Hebrew. It was also simultaneously written in Latin. The main person that wrote the New Testament in English was John Wycliffe. Petrarch wrote it in Latin and provided most of the historical information, especially for Acts of Apostles. There were several other scholars that assisted these two. The main assistant for Petrarch was Giovanni Boccaccio and Wycliffe's main assistant was John Purvey.

The "Code" only works from the Wycliffe Bible of the fourteenth century versions. It will not work from the King James Version (KJV) of 1611 or any of the modern versions. The reason for this is that the New Testament was originally written in the fourteenth century and all the modern versions are just rewording of the KJV which was taken from the Wycliffe Bible (the original). There are no copies of the New Testament older than seven hundred years in Greek or any language. The "codes" have a definite set of rules that they follow in certain patterns at certain times.

  • One of the "rules" is that the opposite is the real hidden meaning from what was written.

  • Another "rule" is that the real meaning hidden is the meaning behind the Biblical names.

Many chapters of the Gospels really describe life of the European royalty of the fourteenth century. Some describe events around the Avignon popes, while other chapters describe famous battles fought by various kings. There were 7 Avignon popes which resided here in the Papal palace for some 70 years. This then is 7 and 70, sometimes referred to as 7 times 70. Petrarch was much against the popes being at Avignon. His coined phrase for this was called the "Babylonian Captivity", an obvious reference to the Avignon "captivity" of the popes during this time of 1308 - 1378. Petrarch also coined the expression "Dark Ages."

I have decoded several chapters which have revealed dozens of battles of the fourteenth century (i.e. Battle of Sluys of 1340; Battle of the Golden Spurs of 1302) and several 'key events' that took place in Europe mostly in the fourteenth century, however some are of the thirteenth century.

I have been researching this for several years and definitely know that the New Testament was instigated by Francesco Petrarch in the fourteenth century, not some 2000 years ago. It was originally written in English by John Wycliffe with much assistance from his associates. As an interesting bit of "recorded information" it shows that Petrarch supposedly died just one day short of his 7oth birthday, being really then 69. Coincidently the Avignon popes really occupied Avignon for a period of 69 years (1309 - 1378). Another coincidence is that Petrarch was buried for the second time in 1380 (which can not be proven it is even Petrarch there). Coincidently the Wycliffe Bible came out in 1382. Both Petrarch and Wycliffe knew Latin well, which would have been their common language. Petrarch did not know English and Wycliffe did not know Italian.

One example of several dozen of the key "Coded" passages I have found is below:

Gospel of Luke, chapter 3, verses 1 and 2 as "coded":

In the fifteen year of the empire of Tiberius, the emperor, when Pilate of Pontii governed Judaea, and Herod was prince of Galilee, and Philip, his brother, was prince of Ituraea, and of the country of Trachonitis, and Lysanias was prince of Abilene under the princes of priests Annas and Caiaphas, the word of the Lord was made on [upon] John, the son of Zacharias, in desert.

Decoded using The Petrarch Code:
In the fifteen year of the empire of the son of the ruler (Duchy of Burgundy), when an arranged marriage to one belonging to the sea (Countess of Flanders) governed the inheritance, and “hero of the day” was prince (John) of revolution, and Philip his brother (Philip I of Burgundy), was prince of mountainous and of the country of stony. That drives away sorrow was prince of the father of one mourning under the princes of those humble. He that seeks with diligence the word of the person with much authority (Petrarch) was made upon Giovanni, the son of whom was remembered by this person with much authority in death.

It so happens that Philip I, Duke of Burgundy, died at the age of 15 in the year 1361.
The son of Petrarch, who's name was Giovanni (John), died also in the year 1361.
This 'Code' then has to do with Francesco Petrarch's son Giovanni, who died in 1361 = same year as the 15 year old Prince Philip.

Acts of the Apostles

Acts of the Apostles turns out to be a list of 28 Famous Men (a.k.a. "De Viris Illustribus") that Petrarch wrote about (of several such lists he did). It is of Famous Men (kings and generals) of Persia, Greece, and Italy. It is in reverse chronological order starting with Cyrus the Great of Persia and goes forward with these famous kings and generals throughout ancient history. Each person is related somehow (blood or adoption) to the previous person. Many are related to the famous general Publius Scipio Cornelius Africanus Major. Scipio's father is in Chapter 10 of Acts under the name "Cornelius." Scipio's family name is Cornelius. Scipio is Chapter 11. Petrarch obtained this extensive historical information about these very Famous Men from the histories recorded by Livy and Polybius. Jerome refers to this list of Acts as Chronicle of Universal History of 28 homilies.

Coincidently Acts of the Apostles has 28 Illustrious Lives, Boccaccio has 106 Lives of Famous Women and Jerome has 134 Illustrious Christians (28 + 106). Jerome's Christian subject 66 is of a "Cornelius." It so happens there are 66 books to the Bible, a very important number. Petrarch's most important person he wrote about was Scipio "Cornelius" in his very famous book (poem) called Africa. Petrarch was crowned poet laureate for this grand work, being the first such person crowned with this title in approximately 1000 years. Scipio "Cornelius" was the main subject of his work.

The decoded 28 Apostles of each chapter for "Acts of the Apostles" are these:

1. Cyrus the Great (First Persain ruler) 580 BC - 530 BC - Cyrus Cylinder of 40 lines.

2. Darius I, the Great (Second Persain ruler) 530 BC - 465 BC (500 BC = pentakosta)

3. Artaxerxes I (son of Xerxes I, grandson of Darius I above)

4. Darius III (Codomannus) was great-grandson of Darius II) (Darius II, half-brother and rival of Xerxes II) (Xerxes II, son of Artaxerxes I)

5. Darius III (Codomannus) with sister-wife Stateira I (Stateira (daughter of Stateira I) married Alexander the Great)

6. Philip II of Macedon.
