Rembrandt is famous for his paintings but not many people know about his personal life. After his wife Saskia died, his life became embroiled in a relationship that would shock the world even today. This short story is about the other side of Rembrandt - officially documented, but few people know of. He was a great artist, but at the same time - could he have been a murderer?
On June 18 On June 18, 2003 Hans Benting received a call from Dr Giorgio Bola regarding an ancient manuscript written in medieval Dutch found in a small forgotten library in Rome. The library was thought to be a private collection with only forty-three books, all in Latin, except for this.
How it came to be there no one knew.
Since all the other books turned out to be non-descript translations of known Bibles they expected this to be the same. Unfortunately no one in Rome could translate it, hence they called Dutch historian Hans Benting. To his surprise the book was not an ancient bible - but something more incredible.
