Michel de Nostredame (14 or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinised to Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties (The Prophecies), the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events.

Most academic sources maintain that the associations made between world events and Nostradamus's quatrains are largely the result of misinterpretations or mistranslations (sometimes deliberate) or else are so tenuous as to render them useless as evidence of any genuine predictive power. No source has any evidence that anyone has ever interpreted any of Nostradamus's quatrains specifically enough to allow a clear identification of any event in advance.

Oracles of Nostradamus: Ward, one of the most well-known scholars of Nostradamus, presents an effective analysis of the famous prophecies. In addition to historical analysis (although there is plenty of that), he presents additional analysis, such as Nostradamus's apparent anticipation of future language, that provide an additional sign of Nostradamus's foresight.

As tool for interpreting the prophecies themselves in the context of history, the book is a seminal work. As Ward wrote more than a century ago, obviously predictions related to events in the 20th and 21st centuries do not receive the same attention. But for older events, particularly the French Revolution, the analysis in unparalleled.
