Overview

Has Nostradamus predicted the coming Apocalypse along with a thousand other great events? His believers claim that in the 1500s he predicted historic milestones that have or will alter the course of human history, such as the rise of Napoleon and Hitler. Published here are the hard to find original English translations from 1672 to help you answer that question. Finally, you can look through the actual work of Nostradamus to see if you can solve his riddles. He scribed over a thousand quatrains that cover events from the 1500s to the year 3797. Since these were translated by Theodore Garencieres, before the rise of the first two antichrists, they are untainted with the bias of current events. See if you can unravel the hidden meaning of his quatrains and discover his vision of the future. Plagued by the Inquisition, Nostradamus was notorious for obfuscating his meaning with anagrams, symbolism, and mythological allusions. Study of his work can be a fascinating hobby or intellectual exercise that can be quite enjoyable. What great event will be discovered next in this cryptic text?

    Rare Find

    I picked up a copy of this book on my recent trip to Greece. In my time away, I was hoping to acquaint myself with the various works of the famous prophets. When I found this book, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had the complete translation of Garencieres. His original book is quite rare and considered to be an antique. I almost managed to acquire a copy once, but it ended up going for over $5,000. This is a historically significant translation since it is one of the earliest modern English versions. Garencieres worked in the 1600's and couldn't slant the translation to fit modern events. It is enjoyable to compare his work to the modern 'masters' of interpretation.
