Overview

Among those legendary for possessing the gift of foresight, Nostradamus stands above all. A prolific writer of occult almanacs, his most famous work is Centuries: 942 gnomic verses, known as quatrains, that have intrigued people for nearly half a millennium. Nostradamus: The Top 100 Prophecies is a carefully selected and beautifully illustrated selection of these quatrains, arranged in thematic order. Ranging from “Disaster and Destruction” to “Tyrants, Statesmen and Heroes,” each quatrain is presented in French along with an insightful English translation accompanied by an incisive commentary. The evocative illustrations include superb, specially commissioned artwork in a highly original and appealing style.
This compelling collection is an amazing list of some of history's greatest moments. From the Great Plague of London in 1665-1666 to the Fall of the Third Reich in 1945, the Gulf War in 1990 to the World Financial Crisis of 2007, each event discussed here-as well as those that have not yet happened-was foretold by the greatest oracle of all time.
