History’s most famed prophet speaks again…

LOST BOOK OF NOSTRADAMUS
On The History Channel®

 

New York, NY, September 11, 2007 — A mysterious book of cryptic prophecies has been discovered at the National Library in Rome, and there is evidence to suggest that it is the final work of the most famous and controversial prophet in the history of the world, Nostradamus. Even more startling than the discovery of the book, though, are the warnings it contains, which were so blasphemous and frightening in their time that they may have been intentionally suppressed until now. A new special examines the life’s work of Nostradamus and the evidence and contents of this startling discovery in LOST BOOK OF NOSTRADAMUS, premiering Sunday, October 28th at 9:00pm ET/PT on The History Channel®.

Nostradamus, born in 1503 in Saint Remy de Provence, France, lived most of his adult life in Salon de Provence, until his death in 1566. He began his career as a prophet relatively late in life, after he wrote the first of his almanacs, published annually beginning in 1550. Nostradamus soon became the trusted seer to the queen of France, Catherine de Medici, wife of King Henri II. It was this relationship that launched him to fame.

Nostradamus’ predictions about famous world events, from Hitler to 9/11, have drawn attention and stirred debate the world over even centuries after his death. Some see a startling pattern of connection to modern events in his words and drawings, while others see nothing but abstractions and empty words. LOST BOOK OF NOSTRADAMUS explores some of the predictions that have given Nostradamus such extraordinary influence today, all the while unveiling the cryptic and frightening drawings in the lost book that take the program to a spectacular and frightening conclusion with critical information for today’s generation.

In the Lost Book, there are images that strongly hint at future trouble for the Catholic Church, and even one image that appears to portray an assassination attempt on one of the modern era’s most beloved popes. There are other images that are said to depict World War I and II, and political movements such as Communism and Fascism. Current global conflicts are also presaged, including the rise of fundamentalism, in particular the current surge of radical Islam.
