Read full description of the books:
Well I've had this book on my shelf for quite a few years so I thought it was about time I read it. I've always been interested in Nostradamus and his predictions of the future, so this book was the obvious choice when looking around for his complete predictions.
Nostradamus the complete prophecies start with a brief history of his life, born in 1503 he was christened Michel de Nostredame. He showed a talent in math and celestial science of astrology and by the time he was 14 his grandfather deemed him ready to go and study liberal arts at Avignon the papal enclave of Provence. The narrator takes us through key points in Nostradamus's life to the very point of his death which was on 2nd July 1566, which Nostradamus foretold himself.
With around 1,110 prophecies there's enough here to keep the reader busy for awhile, Nostradamus takes us on a 7,000 year prediction of the future.
This book does go very in-depth into all aspects of Nostradamus's system (for want of a better word), from language ,phrases to meanings this has it all, however it's not for everyone though as it is a bit of a tome and daunting read. This would be a great book for anyone studying Nostradamus more so for his predictions than his life story though.
I enjoyed my journey through the years of his predictions; it is very evident upon reading it that they are wide open to different interpretations. So it's easy to see why some may come to pass and others don't, as we do seem to pick and chose at will what we believe to be fact. You can't get away from the fact though that Nostradamus had something special about him, that no one in over 400 years has been able to rival.
I do have a favourite story/prediction if you will; Nostradamus was on a road near the Italian town of Ancona when a group of Franciscan monks came into view. As they approached Nostradamus stood aside to let them pass, but on seeing Brother Felice Peretti he immediately bowed, then knelt in the mud before him. The friars, knowing that Peretti was of low birth, where puzzled by his homage and asked Nostradamus why? He replied; I must yield myself and bend a knee before His Holiness. The Friars were highly amused at the explanation but, 40 years after his chance meeting; Brother Peretti became Pope Sixtus V, 19 years after the death of Nostradamus.
Thanks for reading kind regards (A Bald Mage) Keith.
