Introduction to Nostradamus

Skip Intro

Nostradamus commences his count of time from the date of the First Council of Nicaea. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia "The year A.D. 325 is accepted without hesitation as that of the First Council of Nicaea." Most sites listed below say that his calendar is of by two years, assuming he used the Julian calendar.

In his seeing, did he also see the dates of our calendar today?


"It should be noted that there are some definite repeating themes; namely, most predictions are likely to be attributed to Biblical interpretation first, Nostradamus second, Edgar Cayce third....." -[by Garth Haslam; Anomalies]-

When a momentous catastrophe occurs, people react in a variety of ways. One popular response is to seek out prophecies of the event. These forecasts can be comforting because they suggest that the horrible incidents were inevitable, that they happened as part of a larger plan. Through the course of human history, there have been hundreds of notable prophets, but in the wake of modern tragedies, one name seems to pop up more than any other: Nostradamus.

According to the work's preface, a letter from Nostradamus to his son Cesar (a child from his second marriage), the verses were intended to be mystifying. Nostradamus said he was afraid he would be persecuted and his work would be destroyed if authorities in his time fully understood his predictions. According to him, his cryptic prophecies would be better understood by enlightened people in the future.

Nostradamus' major work of prophecies, now referred to as "The Centuries," was published in installments over the course of several years. The work consisted of about a thousand quatrains, four-lined verses, collected in groups of a hundred. The title "The Centuries," which refers to the organizing structure of the work, not to periods of time, was apparently added after Nostradamus' time. His original title was simply "The Prophecies of Michel Nostradamus."

According to the work's preface, a letter from Nostradamus to his son Cesar (a child from his second marriage), the verses were intended to be mystifying. Nostradamus said he was afraid he would be persecuted and his work would be destroyed if authorities in his time fully understood his predictions. According to him, his cryptic prophecies would be better understood by enlightened people in the future.

Skeptics ascribe the apparent accuracy of these quatrains (and others) to two major factors: problems with translation and simple coincidence. This is a lot like modern horoscopes. Horoscopes typically detail things a wide range of people experience regularly, such as "conflicts at work," "happiness in relationships" or "exciting new changes." Chances are, these predictions will line up with your life, at least some of the time.

Before accepting any of the so called translations, ask which calendar the translator is using. There are only a few quatrains that mention a date. One of the more popular verses is:

Century 10, Quatrain 72:

L'an mil neuf nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra un grand Roid'effrayeur:
Ressusciter le grand Roi d'Angolmois,
Avant apr'es Mars regner par bonheur.

The year 1999 seven months
From the sky will come the great King of Terror.
To resuscitate the great king of the Mongols.
Before and after, Mars reigns by good luck.

According to "The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus", New Revised Edition, Nostradamus commences his count of time from the date of the first Council of Nicaea (A.D.325). Simple math tells us 1999 + 325 = 2324.

Upon examination of century VI Quatrain 2 and using the key figure 325, we see that it fits and a very important date appears in the first half of the quatrain (1914). [589 must be interpreted as (1)589]

I have wondered why most who claim to have interpreted Nostradamus have left out of their interpretations Century VI Quatrain 0:

INCANTATION OF THE LAW AGAINST INEPT CRITICS
Let those who read this verse consider it profoundly,
Let the profane and the ignorant herd keep away:
And far away all Astrologers, Idiots and Barbarians,
May he who does otherwise be subject to the sacred rite.

The arrival of July, 1999, was a highly anticipated event by everyone familiar with the prophecies of Nostradamus. Would it be the arrival of Nostradamus' so-called third Antichrist? Would a huge global war occur, or would nothing significant happen in 1999? All of these questions were fair to ask ourselves.

Nostradamus - A Letter to his son Cesar   [New Window]
An excerpt from the letter follows;

"And so once again, my son, if I have eschewed the word prophet, I do not wish to attribute to myself such lofty title at the present time, for whoever is called a prophet now was once called a seer; since a prophet, my son, is properly speaking one who sees distant things through a natural knowledge of all creatures. And it can happen that the prophet bringing about the perfect light of prophecy may make manifest things both human and divine, because this cannot be done otherwise, given that the effects of predicting the future extend far off into time."

Prophecy: A History of the Future    [New Window]

"Michel de Notredame, or Nostradamus, was the greatest prophet of all time. He was born to Renee and Jacques de Notredame in 1503 at St. Remy in Provence, France. They were Jewish, but converted to Christianity under the compulsory edict of Louis XII."

In 1522, his parents sent Michel to study medicine at Montpelier, where he obtained a baccalaureate in 1525. Armed with his license, prescriptions and zeal, Nostradamus set out through southern France to battle the Black Plague. In 1529 he returned to Montpellier to obtain his doctorate. Afterwards he went traveling again, but eventually accepted an invitation to stay at Agen, near Bordeaux, at the house of the eminent poet-philosopher and literary critic Julius-Cesar Scaliger. Nostradamus called Scaliger "a Virgil in poetry, a Cicero in eloquence, a Galen in medicine." -[rexresearch.com]-

Nostradamus: The Great Visionary   [New Window]

"It seems that Nostradamus can never be faulted for an incorrect prediction; since he almost never gives a name, date or place and his vague predictions can be interpreted in so many ways; the blame therefore always lies with the interpreter, and not with the great Nostradamus." -[by Brian Mekdeci]-

The Skeptic's Dictionary: Nostradamus   [New Window]

Skeptics, such as James Randi, cast doubt upon the interpretation of Nostradamus' quatrains...

True believers, such as Erika Cheetham, believe that Nostradamus foresaw the invention of bombs, rockets, submarines, and airplanes...

Shown on this page is how Randi and Cheetham read one of the more famous quatrains, allegedly predicting the rise of Adolph Hitler to power in Germany are.

Neither translation seems to make much sense, but at least Randi's recognizes that 'Hister' refers to a geographical region, not a person. So does 'Germania', by the way; it refers to an ancient region of Europe, north of the Danube and east of the Rhine.
