Nostradamus: The Man Who Foretold the Future
Narrated by Valentine Dyall
The 16th-century astrologer Michel de Nostredame, known as Nostradamus, won extraordinary fame in his own lifetime, curing thousands in the plague years by unorthodox remedies. He is best known for his book Les Propheties (The Prophecies), published in 1555, and had composed 1100 quatrains by the time of his death. Over the past four centuries, Nostradamus's predictions seem to have proven startlingly accurate. Long before their actual invention, mechanical devices such as the periscope, the submarine, and the airplane appear in accurate detail in the great seer's journals. Other passages foresee Napoleon's conquest, the Bolshevik Revolution, the rise of Hitler, and countless events yet to come.
