Encryption uses a correlation table between the letter and symbols in Lingua Ignota.
This table is described by Hildegard of Bingen, church woman, abbess of Rupertsberg, in a book called Lingua Ignota per simplicem hominem Hildegardem prolata (which can be translated from latin by: unknown language imagined by a single person: Hildegarde).
The Lingua Ignota has only 23 distinct symbols, there is no correspondence for the letters J, V and W! By convention, replace J with I, V with U and W with UU.
Hildegarde of Bingen (O.S.B. Order of Saint Benedict, also known as Saint Hildegard or Sibyl of the Rhine) created it in the 12th century in Germany.
