The Hell-Fire club - 'a society for sots and the sexually depraved' - was conceived by Sir Francis Dashwood when he attended a service in the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican during which the worshippers "scourged themselves with whips".

This article is about a book called The Sistine Secrets: Unlocking the Codes in Michelangelo's Defiant Masterpiece in which Rabbi Benjamin Blech, an associate professor of Talmud at Yeshiva University in New York, and Roy Doliner, a tour guide at the Vatican, opine that

I think that vindicates my point of view nicely. If you stare at a suitably complex work of art, you'll see all sorts of shapes in there which you'll relate to what you know. People who stare at brains all day for a living will see diagrams of the brain, whilst people who study the Talmud all day for a living will see Hebrew letters everywhere.

I am searching for the exact measurements of the nine central panels on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. I need these exact measurements to complete a thesis I am working on. Does anyone have any idea what reference works I can research for this material?

About five years ago I wrote an academic paper (I am no academic) on the Sistine Chapel and it was published because of the mathematical science I brought to my work.

THE SISTINE CHAPEL: A Study in Celestial Cartography

Since that publication online I discovered two other patterns and the above request for sources where I can verify the exact measurements of the those nine central panels would be a great help in confirming my theory on the second
