September 11 Prophecy of Nostradamus Decoded
(14 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinized to
Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer
who published collections of prophecies that have since
become famous worldwide.
Born on 14 December 1503 in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in
the south of France, where his claimed birthplace still
exists, Michel de Nostredame was one of at least nine
children of Reynière de St-Rémy and grain dealer and
notary Jaume de Nostredame. The latter's family had
originally been Jewish, but Jaume's father, Guy
Gassonet, had converted to Catholicism in around 1455,
taking the Christian name "Pierre" and the surname
At the age of fifteen the young Nostredame entered the
University of Avignon to study for his baccalaureate.
After little more than a year , he was forced to leave
Avignon when the university closed its doors in the face
of an outbreak of the plague. In 1529, after some years
as an apothecary, he entered the University of
Montpellier to study for a doctorate in medicine. He was
expelled shortly afterwards when it was discovered that
he had been an apothecary, a "manual trade" expressly
banned by the university statutes. The expulsion
document still exists in the faculty library. However,
some of his publishers and correspondents would later
call him "Doctor". After his expulsion, Nostredame
continued working, presumably still as an apothecary,
and became famous for creating a "rose pill" that
supposedly protected against the plague.
1531 Nostredame was invited by Jules-César Scaliger, a
leading Renaissance scholar, to come to Agen. There he
married a woman of uncertain name, who bore him two
children. In 1534 his wife and children died, presumably
from the Plague. After their deaths, he continued to
travel, passing through France and possibly Italy.
Nostradamus's house at Salon-de-Provence.On his return
in 1545, he assisted the prominent physician Louis Serre
in his fight against a major plague outbreak in
Marseille, and then tackled further outbreaks of disease
on his own in Salon-de-Provence and in the regional
capital, Aix-en-Provence. Finally, in 1547, he settled
in Salon-de-Provence in the house which exists today,
where he married a rich widow named Anne Ponsarde, with
whom he had six children — three daughters and three
sons. Between 1556 and 1567 he and his wife acquired a
one-thirteenth share in a huge canal project organized
by Adam de Craponne to irrigate largely waterless Salon
and the nearby Désert de la Crau from the river Durance.
After another visit to Italy, Nostredame began to move
away from medicine and toward the occult. Following
popular trends, he wrote an almanac for 1550, for the
first time Latinizing his name from Nostredame to
Nostradamus. He was so encouraged by the almanac's
success that he decided to write one or more annually.
Taken together, they are known to have contained at
least 6,338 prophecies,
as well as at least eleven annual calendars, all of them
starting on 1 January and not, as is sometimes supposed,
in March. It was mainly in response to the almanacs that
the nobility and other prominent persons from far away
soon started asking for horoscopes and 'psychic' advice
from him, though he generally expected his clients to
supply the birth charts on which these would be based,
rather than calculating them himself as a professional
astrologer would have done. When obliged to attempt this
himself on the basis of the published tables of the day,
he always made numbers of errors, and never adjusted the
figures for his clients' place or time of birth.
He then began his project of writing a book of one
thousand mainly French quatrains, which constitute the
largely undated prophecies for which he is most famous
today. Feeling vulnerable to religious fanatics,
however, he devised a method of obscuring his meaning by
using "Virgilianized" syntax, word games and a mixture
of other languages such as Greek, Italian, Latin, and
Provençal. For technical reasons connected with their
publication in three installments (the publisher of the
third and last installment seems to have been unwilling
to start it in the middle of a "Century," or book of 100
verses), the last fifty-eight quatrains of the seventh
"Century" have not survived into any extant edition.
The quatrains, published in a book titled Les Propheties
(The Prophecies), received a mixed reaction when they
were published. Some people thought Nostradamus was a
servant of evil, a fake, or insane, while many of the
elite thought his quatrains were spiritually inspired
prophecies — as, in the light of their post-Biblical
sources, Nostradamus himself was indeed prone to claim.
Catherine de Médicis, the queen consort of King Henri II
of France, was one of Nostradamus's greatest admirers.
After reading his almanacs for 1555, which hinted at
unnamed threats to the royal family, she summoned him to
Paris to explain them and to draw up horoscopes for her
children. At the time, he feared that he would be
beheaded, but by the time of his death in 1566,
Catherine had made him Counselor and
Physician-in-Ordinary to the King.
Some accounts of Nostradamus's life state that he was
afraid of being persecuted for heresy by the
Inquisition, but neither prophecy nor astrology fell in
this bracket, and he would have been in danger only if
he had practiced magic to support them. In fact, his
relationship with the Church as a prophet and healer was
excellent. His brief imprisonment at Marignane in late
1561 came about purely because he had published his 1562
almanac without the prior permission of a bishop,
contrary to a recent royal decree.
By 1566, Nostradamus's gout, which had plagued him
painfully for many years and made movement very
difficult, turned into oedema, or dropsy. In late June
he summoned his lawyer to draw up an extensive will
bequeathing his property plus 3,444 crowns (around
$300,000 US today) — minus a few debts — to his wife
pending her remarriage, in trust for her sons pending
their twenty-fifth birthdays and her daughters pending
their marriages. This was followed by a much shorter
codicil. On the evening of 1 July, he is alleged to have
told his secretary Jean de Chavigny, "You will not find
me alive at sunrise." The next morning he was reportedly
found dead, lying on the floor next to his bed and a
bench. He was buried in the local Franciscan chapel but
re-interred in the Collégiale St-Laurent at the French
Revolution, where his tomb remains to this day. The
University of Notre Dame was named after Nostradamus.
