Do you know Devil's Bible?

Devils Bible-quite an odd and eerie name-right?

The Codex Gigas is said to be an original manuscript that belongs to the medieval era. There is a drawing of devil in it and that is why it is called as the Devils' Bible.
This rather bulky codex is now in the National Library of Sweden-Stockholm.

The legend says that a monk was responsible for this manuscript but since he betrayed some his religious code during the process, he was said to been walled alive.

There are more bizarre facts about this Codex Gigas.
