Nostradamus

Nostradamus was a French seer living in the 16th century. His predictions of the future are some of the most famous in history, and continue to enjoy widespread popularity to the current day. With the exception of Biblical prophets, his visions are by far the most well-known of the many seers who have existed over the past few centuries… Nostradamus died of gout in 1566, at 62, after supposedly predicting his own death to his secretary the night before. His works continued to be fairly popular for a time after his death, with the majority of the prophecies published together in 1568. Although most of his other works, such as the Almanacs which led to his fame in his lifetime, or the “Orus Apollo”, soon fell into obscurity, the Prophecies themselves saw a massive resurgence in the wake of the 19th century occult revival. The Prophecies by Nostradamus continue to be applied to major world events, and will likely continue to be applied to events well into the future.
