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' ..

The Nostradamus Encyclopedia: The Definitive Reference Guide to the Work and World of Nostradamus


Probably the world's most widely read pyschic, Michel de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus, was born circa 1503 , he received a broad religious education. His father's side of the family was Jewish but had converted to Roman Catholicism because of an Edict of King Louis XII , either when Nostradamus was young or sometime before he was born. It is also conceivable that Nostradamus was a "Marrano". Marranos were secret Jews who were forced to adopt Christianity under threat of expulsion but who continued to practice Judaism secretly. The term in Spanish meant swine.

It is believed that this heritage led Nostradamus to study Jewish scriptures, as well as the books of the New Testament. Throughout his life, according to legend, Nostradamus was interested in the apocalyptic prophecies in the Book of Revelation, as well as Kabbalah, a mystical branch of Judaism.


Nostradamus claimed an angelic spirit helped him understand how future forces would manifest themselves. He sought out inspiration through various forms of meditation, generally focusing in on fire or water, possibly while under the influence of mild hallucinogens. 

He is reported to have believed the Virgin Mary to be a Demon. This report is based largely on a remark he once made about a statue of the Virgin Mary which landed him in court defending himself against charges of heresy. His defense was that he didn't care for the likeness of the Virgin that was being created and that the remark was merely meant to be an aesthetic objection to the statues appearance.   When told to appear before the feared Church Inquisitors at Toulouse, he became a fugitive.

  He published his collection of prophecies, "The Centuries," in 1555. Each four-line verse/quatrain purported to forecast world events far into the future, and ever since Nostradamus' time people have attributed his work with accurately predicting wars, natural disasters and the rise and fall of empires.  Interpreters of his writings point to unusual similarities between what Nostradamus wrote and events that later happened in the world. His works seem to predict the rise and fall of Napoleon ,The world wars, Hitler (the second anti Christ), the holocaust, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassinations and more.  His prophecies/quatrains bear a magical melodic quality for those who study them: they are vague and muddled prior to the the predicted event, but become clear after the event has occurred.

 Nostradamus began his prophecies with two verses that described the means by which he arrived at his predictions. In the two letters that preface his books of prophecies, first to César 2, his new-born son, and then to a Frenchman Henri Secundas , he enlarged upon his method. In both verses, he appears to refer to the same means, once described by visitors to the Delphic Oracle , and whose works he may have copied.

Many of the quatrains can be applied to multiple instances. There are a few which I found incredibly striking.



Nostradamus's  Sources

 Besides the "Angelic Spirit" and  various methods of Divination attributed to him Nostradamus drew upon various other Sources in devising his predictions.

 He was deeply involved in Astrology. Many ancient as well as contemporary Astrologists believed that History works in Cycles and inevitably repeats itself.  Many of his Prophecies are allusions to events from known history at his time with a futuristic twist.  Drawing upon known history and Astrological cycles he attempts , successfully at times, to write future History  {"But the certainty of things past ... gives us confidence in things to come. " Nostradamus from one of his many letters}

 Some scholars also believe his works are largely plagiarized in their nature, although in his time Plagiarism was not considered an intellectual offense .  In fact large tracts of his works/prophecies are based directly on ancient prophetic collections most of them claiming to be biblically based.

 In Avignon, where he studied,  he became friends with the Grand Master of the Knights of St. John [later called the Knights of Malta]. They were the keepers of the great treasures of the Church, including some of the books of prophecy From which it is thought by some that Nostradamus copied many of his works.

Mirabilis liber was a contemporary work {Published between 1515 and 1522, in France} upon which He drew. Mirabilis liber contained prophecies by the Tiburtine Sibyl, Pseudo-Methodius, Joachim of Fiore, and Girolamo Savonarola .

 "The Mirabilis Liber (or Liber Mirabilis) was attributed by many authors to Jean de Vatiguerro, a pseudonym, who lived from the 13th to the 15th century. Some writers attribute this book to other authors, such as Nostradamus father, St. Cesaire, Jean Muller etc. This 16th century book has 2 parts, the first in Latin and the last one, smaller, in French. The only translation of this book was printed in French in 1831. According to some people, the 1522 edition has a prophecy concerning the French Revolution--the expulsion and abolition of the nobility, the violent death of the king and queen, the persecution of the clergy, the suppression of the converts, are all mentioned therein, followed by the further prophecy that the eagle coming from distant lands would re-establish order in France. When people in France knew about this prophecy in the book, many people went to the French libraries trying to read the prophecy at that time. The French government then did not allow the people to check the book and cut the second and last part of the book, in French, which supposedly had the prophecy. This is why many of these books found in French libraries (such as St. Genevieve) do not have the second part, according to Fabio R. Araujo, author of Selected Prophecies and Prophets.     There were also prophecies linked to events in the 19th century, such as 1830 and 1848 revolutions. Concerning future events, the book has rare prophecies about a future flood in France, about a Muslim invasion in Europe, a big war etc. collected from different sources, saints, found in libraries etc. "  {Wikipedia}

Other Works he allegedly copied or drew upon are

  • Virgil's Eclogues (42-37 BC), and Aeneid (19 BC)

    • The Eclogues by Virgil 1 were ten poems written between 42 and 37 B.C. In the fourth Eclogue Virgil makes several mysterious prophecies, similar to the Sibylline Oracles. During the middle ages Virgil developed a reputation as a sorcerer or 'magi', and it is quite possible that the Gnostic / esoteric meaning within this poem was a contributing factor.

  • Livy's History of Rome (1st century BC to 1st Century AD)

  • Julius Obsequens's Omens and Prodigies (4th century AD)

    • Julius Obsequens was a Roman writer who lived in the middle of the fourth century AD. The only work associated with his name is the Liber de prodigiis (Book of Prodigies), largely extracted from a work by Livy; De prodigiis was constructed as an account of the wonders and portents that occurred in Rome between 249 BC-12 BC.

Nostradamus may have predicted his own death. When his assistant bade him a goodnight on July 1, 1566, Nostradamus pronounced, "You will not find me alive at sunrise." He was found dead the next morning.

In 1791 during the French Revolution, soldiers broke into his Tomb with the intent to loot. However, Nostradamus may have foresaw this and was waiting for the perpetrators on the other side when they arrived shortly after their desecration.



Century 9,   Quatrain 7

The man who opens the tomb when it is found
And who does not close it immediately,
Evil will come to him
That no one will be able to prove.

The soldiers who desecrated the tomb were ambushed by Royalists on their way back to base and slaughtered.



The London Fire of 1666


Century 2, Quatrain 51

The blood of the just will be demanded of London,
Burnt by the
fire in the year 66
The ancient Lady will fall from her high place
And many of the same sect will be killed


London was destroyed  when a great fire in
1666 burnt down nearly 3/4 of London.  This is one of the rare prophecies in which a date is given.






The French Revolution


Century 1, Quatrain 14

From the enslaved people, songs, chants and demands,
The princes and lords are held captive in prisons:
In the future by such headless idiots
These will be taken as divine utterances.


Century 9, Quatrain 34

The husband, alone afflicted, will be mitered;
Conflict will take place at the tile works by 500.
One betrayer will be titled.

In 1791 a gang of 500 angry Frenchmen calling themselves the Marsi'es, meaning "The 500" , attacked King Louis' palace.

Century 2, Quatrain 57

Before the war comes,
the great wall will fall,
The King will be executed, his death coming too soon will be lamented.
(The guards) will swim in blood,
Near the River Seine the soil will be bloodied.


July 14th, 1789 the walls of the Bastille, the prison which stood as a symbol to the detested monarchy, were stormed. This is considered the start of the French revolution that shook France, and the Western World.



Century 9, Quatrain 20

By night he will come to the forest of Reines,
A devious rout, the white Queen of stone
And the gray King, to Varennes.



The flight of King Louis and his Queen Marie Antoinette through the Forest of Reines, the king was dressed in a gray cloak. They attempted their escape by carriage to Varennes.




The government taken over, will convict the king.
A new king invites guests to a wedding,
but others plot the lady's death,
as well as that of his mistress.


The French people convicted King Louis . The Queen was tried by a jury chosen by lot. They were sentenced to death , taken to a square in Paris and beheaded by guillotine.



Nostradamus on  Napoleon


Century 8, Quatrain 1

PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood,
To swim in praise, the great one to flee to the confluence.
He will refuse entry to the Piuses,
The depraved ones and the Durance will keep them imprisoned.



Nostradamus anagramized reference to Napoleon was  "PAU, NAY, LORON.3"  All were written in uppercase to denote their significance.  An apparent decoding would give us several towns in southwestern France: Pau, Nay and (O)loron which would leave the casual observer thinking him to be writing of a particular geographic region within France. HOWEVER, the rest of the quatrain clearly strays from the subject of these towns and describes a person.  



He will refuse entry to the Piuses:  He held 2 Piuses  , Pope Pius the VI & Pope Pius VII prisoner. Refusing them entry into the Papal states.


There are other Quatrains which are believed to refer to the French Revolution and Napoleon I have only listed the most flagrant.  For a more extensive analysis see ...


See Napoleon Prophesied  

John Hogue on Napoleon




Nostradamus on Hitler


In 1938 a Frenchman named Max Pigeard de Gurbert  under the pseudonym of Max de Fontbrune, wrote about a coming war between France and Germany based on his interpretations of Nostradamian writings. He predicted that Germany would lose and Adolph Hitler would be destroyed . He was accused of "Germanophobia" by many of his countrymen, ...after all the Germans had surely learned their lesson in the First World War.   After Germany occupied France, his books were seized and destroyed.


There are several Quatrains in the Centuries of Nostradamus that refer to a person or thing Called "Hister" , as well as several other passages which some have interpreted to be relative to Hitler.


Hister ot Ister is an Old Latin word for the Danube River.  Nostradamus enthusiasts believe it is an anagramized allusion to Adolf Hitler . Prior to 1930 it was believed that Hister in Nostradamus writings  was referring to the river Ister or Danube, based upon its Latin name, not the person Hitler who was at the time unknown.  But the Nazi's believed they recognized their Messiah Hitler in these quatrains and made great propaganda out of them in the pre-war party years. Evidence of this is found in many sources, chiefly a book ‘Nostradamus and the Nazis’ by Elli Howe {Currently out of print and rare} .    


"Berndt handed in a plan for the occultist propaganda to be carried on by us. We are getting somewhere. The Americans and English fall easily to this kind of propaganda. We are therefore pressing into service all star witnesses of occult prophecy. Nostradamus must once again submit to being quoted."  - Diary of Joseph Goebbels,  May 19, 1942





Century 1, Quatrain 35

The shocking and infamous armed one will fear the great furnace, First the chosen one, the captives not returning The world’s lowest crime, the Angry Female Irale not at ease, Barb, Hister, Malta, and the Empty One does not return.


My interpretation of the above Quatrain is that it refers to the Holocaust.  The Great Furnace from which the captives are not returning, may be an allusion to the Crematories of the Concentration camps - It certainly was the world’s lowest crime.

 The Angry Female Irale which could be an anagrammatic Allusion to Israel .  The Chosen one possibly referring to the Chosen people as the Jews consider themselves.


Century 2, Quatrain 24

Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.  Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn, When the child of Germany observes nothing.

The proposed connection to Hitler is evident in the above Quatrain.

Hister is used not used in a context where it could be referring to a river, it clearly refers to person/leader.


Century 3, Quatrain 35

From the deepest part of Western Europe
A young child will be born to poor people
Who will by his speech seduce a great multitude,
His reputation will increase in the Kingdom of the East


Many have interpreted this is referring to Hitler's Youth, but it is vague enough where it could refer to others also.  Some have interpreted the "Kingdom of the East" as denoting Japan.


Century 4, Quatrain 68
In the year very not far from Venus,
The two greatest ones of Asia and of Africa:
They are said to have come from the Rhine and from
Hister Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian sea-coast.

Definitely draws a connection between Italian Mediterranean region and Germanic areas. Some have interpreted it as referring to Nazi  conquests in Spain and Italy



Century 5, Quatrain 29

Liberty will not be regained, It will be occupied by a black, proud, villainous and unjust man: When the matter of the Pontiff is opened, The republic of Venice will be vexed by Hister.




Nostradamus is definitely not referring to a river in this Quatrain although the connection of "The Republic of Venice"  suggests a reference to Italy it is vague and open to wide interpretation.




Century 5, Quatrain 29

Near the Rhine from the Austrian mountains
Will be born a great man of the people, come too late.
A man who will defend Poland and Hungary
And whose fate will never be certain.



This Quatrain has been interpreted as referring to Hitler also, he certainly fits. Although he did not defend Poland and Hungary - he conquered them.



Kennedy Assassination


1963 nearly half a Century ago, the first Kennedy was murdered.  Nostradamus may have foreseen it.  Or Maybe not . These are some of the Quatrains which are very vague and could apply themselves a myriad of Historical instances.

In 1949 Henry C. Roberts, {The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus }. wrote the following ...


 “The taking over of Czechoslovakia by Hitler, the resignation of President Benes, the dissensions over the matter between France and England, and the dire warning of the consequences of this betrayal, are all remarkably outlined in this prophecy.”




Century 1, Quatrain 27

The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt.
An evil deed, foretold by the bearer of a petition.
According to the prediction, another falls at night time."


JFK was executed shortly after noon in Dallas Texas, on 22 November 1963. His brother Robert Kennedy was murdered around 1 A.M..  Jeane Dixon, although hardly a prophet by my reckoning, did predict JFK’s assassination . She could be the bearer of the petition of which Nostradamus writes. Or maybe not.




Century 6, Quatrain 37

The ancient work will be accomplished,
and from the roof evil ruin will fall on to the great man.
Being dead, they will accuse an innocent of the deed,
the guilty one hidden in the misty woods.

This quatrain has been cited as evidence that Nostradamus  was aware of the hypothetical and mysterious "second assassin" that many have speculated fired from the "grassy knoll" when JFK was executed.
