"The modern languages expert Peter Lemesurier is widely regarded as Britain's leading authority on Nostradamus."
--Ian Wilson, author of Nostradamus: The Man Behind the Prophecies
"A radically new view on Nostradamus's prophecy-making, supported by a biography putting things back into the right perspective, along with the most literal and up-to-date translation so far."
--Wouter Weyland, International Nostradamus Research Group
"It is surprising to find that a book on such a topic can be so readable, interesting and encompassing. Peter Lemesurier is a scholar with a world-wide reputation in esoteric studies and is deeply knowledgeable aboutâ€¦all the significant works that have been [previously] published...."
--David Hill, Emeritus Professor of Computer Science, University of Calgary
Do you think Nostradamus, the famous 16th century "Prophet of Provence," was some kind of magician, perhaps a doctor, astrologer, and seer, too? If so, Peter Lemesurier's revelation that he was really just an ordinary man using an equally ordinary technique may come as a shock.
After re-examining the original sources, Lemesurier concludes that Nostradamus was in fact neither a doctor nor an astrologer, nor even (by his own admission) a prophet. He merely believed that history repeats itself, thus and projected known past events onto the future. To do so, he used the process of bibliomancy--randomly selecting extracts of randomly chosen books, then claiming "divine inspiration."
Unsurprisingly, he has almost never been proved right.
P.S. With the book you get a cd with the copies of the most important works of Nostradamus!
