Nostradamus, born Michel de Nostredame in French or Miquel de Nostradama in Occitan (Saint-Remy-de-Provence, December 14 or 21, 1503 [1] – Salon-de-Provence, to July 2, 1566), was an astrologer, writer , French chemist and pharmacist.
He is considered by many, along with Saint Malachi, to be one of the most famous and important writers of prophecy in history. He is especially famous for his book The Prophecies, which consists of rhymed quatrains, we gathered in groups of one hundred, in the Book of Centuries and Prophecies (1555).

Proponents of the reliability of these prophecies attributed to the Nostradamus ability predicting an incredible number of events in world history, including the French Revolution, the atomic bomb, the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the attacks of 11 September 2001. No one has ever been shown however to derive reliable data from Nostradamus’ quatrains to predict the future.
He points out that these predictions are nothing more than examples of retroactive clairvoyance. In other words, the quatrains are written in such an ambiguous way that anyone, in hindsight, can read and interpret as they see fit. “Nostradamus never really expected any future event. In fact, the only three occasions that indicated a specific date for his prophecies was spectacularly wrong: in a foresaw in 1792 the culmination of a long and savage religious persecution that he did ‘there has never been, in another the total destruction of the human species for 1732 and in the third, the end of the world for 1999 “.
Nostradamus was born on December 14 or 21, 1503, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France, the father was Jaume (or Jacques) de Nostredame (grain merchant and rich notary), mother Reynière (or Renée) of Saint -Rémy. Jaume was the first of six children of Pierre de Nostredame and Blanche de Sainte-Marie. The name of Pierre de Nostredame was given to the Jew Guy de Gassonet (son of Arnauton de Velorges) on the occasion of his conversion to Catholicism, probably around 1455. Documents from the archives of Avignon and Carpentras, which often refer to Jews present in respective estates and other regions, suggesting the possibility that the origin of the name Nostredame was imposed by Pierre de Foix, then Archbishop of Arles. [7] Nostradamus’ grandfather, Guy de Gassonet, so intensely lived their conversion to divorce Comrade Benastruge Gassonet, reluctant to abandon Judaism.
Trace remains of some of the Michel brothers: Delphine, Jean (approximately from 1507 to 1577), Pierre, Hector, Louis Bertrand, Jean II (born in 1522) and Antoine (born in 1523). Little is known of his childhood: it is believed to have been educated by grandfather Jean de Saint-Remy, [9] a circumstance however contradicted by other sources.

At fifteen Nostradamus entered the University of Avignon to obtain a baccalaureate. After about a year, began to study mathematics, rhetoric, astronomy and astrology, was forced to leave the university because this closed because of the plague. According to the traditional story, Nostradamus traveled for eight years researching medicinal plants that could serve as a plague. In 1529, after several years as an apothecary, he entered the University of Montpellier for a doctorate in medicine. He was expelled shortly after they discovered his past as a chemist, is expressly prohibited in the university structure. The paper ejection (BIU Montpellier, inscribe S 2 folio 87) is now in the university library. Still gets the red robe at the third entry in 1532 and is later referred to as “Doctor”. Nostradamus continued to travel, visit Avignon, Bordeaux and Toulouse and achieved notoriety by creating a pink pill which was believed to protect against the plague.
In 1531 he was invited by Julius Caesar Scaliger, considered one of the Renaissance spirits, to go to the town of Agen Occitan. Il Nostradamus married a woman whose name is still under discussion (possibly Henriette d’Encausse), who bore him two sons. In 1537, his wife and children died, presumably of the plague.
After their deaths, he continued to travel, passing through France and Italy. In 1545 he tried to help Louis Serre in the fight against the plague in Marseille, then, alone, in other parts of France. In 1547 he settled in Salon, where he married a wealthy widow named Anne Ponsarde, and they had three sons and three daughters. He began to move away from medicine and the occult. According to traditional history, he wrote an almanac in 1550; also he decided to write one every year. These almanacs are believed to contain at least 6,338 prophecies. Probably the success of many notable almanacs began to ask him for amulets and horoscopes.
Corrado Pagliani, in 1934, in an article reconstructs the possible passage of Nostradamus in Turin. Such a change would be evidenced by a plaque placed sull’androne the farm Domus Morozzo, belonging to the homonymous family residing in Villa Vittoria Via Lessona in the township Parella and demolished in the sixties.
In his article, Pagliani stated to play a purported daguerreotype photograph of the original, then in turn photographed with current techniques from only 1922. Written in Franco-Provençal, the plate read: “Our ISS6 Damvs here halogenated on Ilia Le Heaven pervasive hell the skin, but I victory QVI honors avrala glory QVI despises me OVRA the ethnicity of rvine. “

In time, even before Pagliani’s article, they then followed several documents that appeared to have held Nostradamus’ permanence in Turin, but the lack of evidence of such a transition.
He began his project of writing a thousand quatrains (four-line poems) in French, which form the supposed prophecies for which he is famous today; quatrains were actually published, however 942. For fear of making themselves vulnerable to religious fanaticism, [2] clouded his verses using puns and different languages ​​like Provencal, Greek, Latin, Italian, Hebrew and Hebrew. Arab.
The quatrains, published in a book called The Prophecies, received a mixed reaction after publication. Some people thought Nostradamus was a devil’s servant, a liar, or a madman, while much of the elite thought his quatrains were spiritually inspired prophecies.
Many nobles came to him for advice and horoscopes. Catherine de Medici, queen consort of Henri II of France, was one of the admirers of Nostradamus: After reading the prophecies invited him to the royal court in Paris to obtain explanations on the recently published centuries (according to some, also on the quatrains around her husband’s imminent death) and to draw up horoscopes for her royal children. After this meeting, Queen Catherine was a strong supporter of Nostradamus and shortly before his death in 1566, appointed him advisor and physician to King Henry III of Valois.
Some believe that Nostradamus had a fear of being persecuted for heresy by the Inquisition, but neither prophecy nor his astrological activities were the subject of the Inquisition’s attention. Relations with the Catholic Church as a physician and healer were excellent and his brief incarceration in 1561 took place only in connection with the fact that an almanac was published without the prior approval of the bishop, thus violating a royal decree .
1566 Nostradamus’ gout, which made him suffer greatly for many years and the movement made very difficult, turned into dropsy. Tradition has it that one July night sent a note wanting to spend the last night alone and when his secretary Chavigny dismissed him with a “Until tomorrow, Lord?” Nostradamus replied, “I don’t live there in dawn. ”The next morning, Chavigny led friends and family into the study (which had been turned into a bedroom) and found Nostradamus’ body lying on the floor between the bed and a makeshift bench. was buried in the local chapel, but then, during the French Revolution, the corpse was transferred to the Collegiate Church of Saint-Laurent, in Salon-de-Provence, in the south of France, where it is now.
