  • the pictures resemble zodiac pictures
  • the counted number of figures are all 30 together, meaning the number of days per period

Why are there pages with more circles than others ?

A possible solution can be found in Schedelsche Weltchronik.

Hartmann Schedel war ein deutscher Humanist, Autor und Historiker.

The left says: Von werk des ersten tags => about the first day

full text: https://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Die_Schedelsche_Weltchronik_(deutsch):003

finsternus = duisternis

The rights says:  Von werk des anderen tags => of other days
“Am andere tag sprach got=> on the other day God spoke”

Very interesting to see:   * the text does not use Buchstaben (capitals) on the words as is common for Werk/Tags/ Got

Then there is the third day and fourth day with more circles.
The fifth till the seventh day have different pictures.

and of course these pages tell about the christian biblical creation of life by god.
-see also here-  in Genesis.

Also it comes to my attention that this can also be an Hebrew text that displays a Jewesh Calender( see also here)

A lunisolar calendar is a calendar in many cultures whose date indicates both the moon phase and the time of the solar year.



the libra in the Liber Florides resembles the drawing in the VMS

(Lambert de Saint Omer Liber Floridus)

Why are the ladies in the zodiac pages drawn as sitting on or in barrels?

If we look at the first mappa mundi, such as the well known Catala World Atlas from 1375.

Cities, churches and other important places are shown as round walls and something coming out of that round structure.

This can be seen even more clearly in the  Angelino Dulcert: an classical Italian cartographer around 1339:


But another indication can be found, during researching the Aratus Solensis.
