In recent years, Norwegian Petter Amundsen’s Shakespeare theories have received much attention: The amateur cryptographer believes that Sir Francis Bacon and the Rosicrucian Order were the real authors of Shakespeare’s works.
For nearly ten years, Amundsen has been searching through the unknown codes in Shakespeare’s plays. Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation has made a documentary in six episodes working through his analyzes and theories. It is based on the book “Organisten” from 2006, written by Amundsen and author Erlend Loe, revealing a map of codes in Shakespeare’s literature.
– The news is that we are facing a brotherhood connection, a secret organization from the 1600s. The entire First Folio from 1623 is full of these codes, Amundsen says.
His discoveries suggest that even the lost Shakespeare manuscripts are preserved.
According to Amundsen, the Masonic brotherhood encoded secret messages in Shakespeare’s texts which lead us to a religious treasure on Oak Island in Canada. The documentary will reveal more details, but Amundsen makes sure that his work is by no means finished.
