Nostradamus: The Man Behind the World Predictions That Turned True

When you have no idea what’s going to happen the next moment, there was a man who predicted the future of the world. And it’s not good news that all his predictions happen to be true.

The writer, prophet & French physician Michel de Nostredame is best known for his book ‘Les Propheties’ - a collection of poems, quatrains grouped in ten sets of verses (referred as centuries)of 100 quatrains each. The first edition of the book was published in 1555 by the publishing house Macé Bonhomme. It included 53 quatrains and three whole centuries. The second edition of the book was published the same year but with minor differences. The third edition of the same was published after two years and included the text of the previous edition with three more centuries.

Nostradamus studied at the University of Avignon. Unfortunately, after a year of his admission, the university closed due to the plague. He got married in 1531, but his wife and children died during another plague outbreak. After leaving Avignon, he traveled the countryside to research for the herbal remedies.

Nostradamus then wrote an Almanac (an annual publication that lists a set of events to occur in the next year). The publication includes tide tables, weather forecasts and more. It also adds information and statistics found in Almanacs such as date of eclipses, religious festivals and hours of low and high tides.

His Almanac was a great success. As a result, he continued writing them for years. He then started working as an astrologer for several rich persons. Queen of France Catherine de Medici (1547-1559) became his supporter.

Nostradamus Prophecies book gained many supporters. Many popular presses (newspaper and media) gave him credit for his accurate predictions based on world events. However, many academic sources rejected his beliefs that Nostradamus had supernatural abilities and the link between his quatrains and world events are the result of mistranslations.

Apart from being an astrologer, he was also a professional healer. He wrote two books on medical science. One was the translation of The Protreptic of Galen. Another book Traité des fardemens included a description of the methods he used to cure the plague. It also described the preparation of cosmetics.

The Content of the Quatrains

Most of his quatrains speak about earthquakes, invasions, droughts, battle, wars, and murders. The major theme is the invasion of Europe by Muslim forces from east and south headed by Antichrist (antagonist of the Messiah), reflecting the current Ottoman invasions (series of military conflicts between the European states and Ottoman Empire) and earlier Saracen equivalents.

The rhymed quatrains were written in French with some quatrains in Greek and Latin too. He used symbols, added or removed letters to hide the originality of the quatrain.

Do you know Nostradamus predicted even his death? He told his secretary that today is his last day. The next day, he was found dead lying on the floor next to his bed. Just imagine his predictions and accuracy!
