The Copiale code is the name given to a substitution alphabet (homophonic) discovered in a fully encrypted manuscript, whose only inscriptions are Philipp, 1866 and 'Copiales 3'.
The manuscript was decoded by a team of researchers in 2011. The content of the book describes in German language, an initiation ceremony for a secret society.
The Copiale code uses a homophonic substitution alphabet (several characters can correspond to the same starting character).
Here is the correspondence table found by the researchers:
The letter Q has no translation. The space character is systematically encoded.
The decryption of the Copiale code is an inverse substitution, each character is then translated into a letter of the Latin alphabet or a space (or in rare cases, a group of letters).
The text is composed of characters from the Latin alphabet, a few Greek letters, and a minority of various glyphs.
No spaces are visible in the text (because spaces are encrypted by a letter)
Any references to a secret society, German or in Germany or to a manuscript are clues.
