Answers to Questions

How to encrypt a litany according to Trithemius?

Encryption uses a correlation table between letters and portions of psalms. Trithemiushref wrote a book (Polygraphiae - Ioannes Trithemiushref) which contains a hundred pages with Latin words and associated them with a letter of the alphabet.

The first page contains the following associations:

Adeus, clemensBcreator,clementissimus
Cconditor,piusDopifex,piissimus
Edominus,magnusFdominator,excelsus
Gconsolator,maximusHarbiter,optimus
Iiudex,sapientissimusKilluminator,inuisibilis
Lillustrator,immortalisMrector,aeternus
Nrex,sempiternusOimperator,gloriosus
Pgubernator,fortissimusQfactor,sanctissimus
Rfabricator,incompraehensibilisSconseruator,omnipotens
Tredemptor,pacificusUauctor,misericors
Xprinceps,misericordissimusYpastor,conctipotens
Zmoderator,magnificusßsaluator,excellentissimus

Encryption consists in encoding each letter of the message with a word in the list, the result will resemble a prayer/litany in Latin.

To encrypt DCODE, use a word for D: opifex or piissimus, same with C, O etc.

You can obtain for example the following poem: Opifex pius
Imperator piissimus
Dominus

The book of Trithemiushref is composed of several hundred words. dCode only handles the first page of this fully written Latin book readable on this link: http://diglib.hab.de/drucke/fb-128/start.htm

Decryption requires to find the correspondence of each word in the book Polygraphia from Trithemiushref.

The plain message is DCODE.

How to recognize an Ave Maria from Trithemius?
