Centurie X - Quatrain 72:
L'an mil Neuf cent nonante neuf sept mois
Du ciel viendra un grand Roi d'effrayeur:
Ressusciter le grand Roi d'Angolmois,
Avant après Mars regner par bonheur.

The year thousand nine hundred ninety nine seventh month, (1999)
From the sky will come a great King of Terror;
To revive the great King of the Mongols,
Before, after Mars to reign through good luck.

NOTE: In the author's opinion
the 'seventh month' means September...
in the Julian Calendar ['seven' = 'sept' in Latin]
For those looking for the RAPTURE
Nostradamus and mystical tradition would
place it in OCTOBER [year?]

    IS THIS VERSE A FAILURE?

    Since it is the author's hypothesis that all of the dates that Nostradamus wrote
    were scrambled Julian Calendar dates [see Universal Prophetic Calendar.] -
    except this one particular prophecy - it seems inescapable that this
    '1999' date must be a modern calendar date ... and therefore a failure.

    One correspondent who visited this site posed an alternative [quite in keeping
    with convoluted mystical usage] -- the line should read:
    The year one thousand nine hundred ninety nine [plus] seven months

    Assuming this tack, then we are again faced with calendar alternatives.
    In the 'old' calendar the year ended March 21, and September was
    the seventh month. Thus, we would be left to observe BOTH July and September
    of the year 2000 for a possible fulfilment of this presage.

    To date it is questionable that this verse has been fulfilled.

     


    The attack on New York on September 11, 2001, has spawned a rash of bogus prophecies attributed to the French seer, Nostradamus.

    The author feels it is necessary - and has been requested - to clarify some common misconceptions making the rounds on the internet. Follows is a general response that was posted to various correspondents immediately following the appearance of the bogus renderings:

      Every time some major world event takes place, the web seems to get inundated with Nostradamus 'paste-ups'... I say 'paste ups', because much of the material is indeed authentic, but pasted together to make a preconceived notion fit the events.

      That puts me in the unhappy position of being a constant nay-sayer. Let me say that there are some valid quotes above that merit more study. But the 'paste-up' is rather scurrilous, I think.

      First, there is no mention of 'York' in any of the seer's writings; the allusion is to a phrase used a few times in The Centuries: the New City. While that surely implies New York City to our modern mind, some of the context makes it difficult to support that thesis.

      Let me quote Centurie X, verse 72 [ABOVE also] in order to make my point:

        The year 1999, seventh month, [a thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine, seven months]
        From the sky will come a great king of terror;
        To bring back to life the great king of the Mongols [Angolmois]
        Before and after Mars to reign by good fortune.

      Similarly, here is Centurie VI, verse 97:
        At forty five degrees the sky will burn,
        Fire to approach the great new city;
        In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
        When one will wish to demand [?] proof of the Normans.

      The first thing you will notice is that the Frenchman wrote in four line verses. However, there is some reference in his Epistle to his son that prefaced the second edition:

        At that time the great sails of Byzantium [roughly 'Turkey'], allied with the Ligurians* and through the support and power of Aquilon [Latin: north] will impede them so greatly that the two Cretans [Cretenses - Latin: one from Crete] will be unable to maintain their faith. The arks built by the ancient warriors will accompany them to the waves of Neptune. In the Adriatic [sea between Italy and the Balkans] great discord will arise, and that which will have been united will be separated. To a house will be reduced that which was, and is, a great city, including the Pampotamia [Greek: 5 rivers] and Mesopotamia [Greek: between the rivers] of Europe at 45, and others of 41, 42 and 37 degrees.

        *Genoa, a small semi-circle shaped province on the northwest Italian coast jammed against the Meditteranean Sea by alpine mountains... near France; a port dating back before Roman times.

      =====

      Well, I think that covers the bulk of the material 'pasted-up' in your communique.

      I will say that I find more merit in Centurie X, verse 49:

        Garden of the world near the new city,
        In the way of the hollow mountains;
        It will be seized and plunged into the Tub*,
        forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.

        * Modern French cuvier: wash tub; Old Fr cuve: basin; Latin cupa: cask

      I wonder if a friend that called me after the attack on New York wasn't more pithy, referring to 'Alas Babylon' [Book of Revelations, chapters 17 and 18], and the whole world watching as Babylon, who controls the kingdoms of the earth, goes down.

      I am working diligently on another book, and haven't really had the time to delve into the nuances of these events in light of Nostradamus or Bible prophecy. Certainly some honest effort should be made to search out these possibilities... but, unhappily, people seem more captive to the deceiver.
