Nostradamus was born into a rich Jewish / Catholic family in St.
Remi, France on December 14, 1503. Many people suspect that he continued
to practice Catholicism throughout his life, however he was fascinated
with his Jewish heritage and even learned Hebrew.
In 1555, at the age of 52, he wrote his first collection of prophecies.
These are what Nostradamus was most famous for. The Complete Book
of Nostradamus is located at the Nostradamus Mabus Project.
The Book of Nostradamus is organized with a very simple layout.
Each of the 10 centuries (or chapters) contain 100 prophetic quatrains
(a 4 line poem that is also a prediction), except for Century VII,
which has 42 quatrains, for a total of 942 prophecies.
Stepping back however Nostradamus was not only a prophet, he was
a medical doctor at the most urgent of times.
Nostradamus received his Medical degree from the Mont Pellier School
of Medicine. During the black plague of Europe. His unconventional
approach to treatment was almost unheard of at the time, however now
it would be common practice. To wash and clean yourself to keep the
germs away. At the time doctors used to "bleed" the sick
to release the germs. Though he was known as very good doctor, he
was unable to save his children and his wife from the plague.
Nostradamus was also an excellent businessman. The sales of his book
were substantial, even at a time when most people could not read.
He was also a poet, something that most people overlook. The Centuries,
(The Book of Nostradamus) is written in a very interesting way. It's
not a clear cut writing, but rather it's a cryptic jumble of French
and Latin as well as references to areas using their biblical or even
No one currently walking the earth has ever met Nostradamus, so there
is no possible way they could really know 100% what those quatrains
actually mean. It's all our best try however to publish the book online,
and use our collective intelligence to figure them out.
There are thousands upon thousands of rumors surrounding Nostradamus.

The Nostradamus Mabus Project does not try to interpret the quatrains.
Though our members (and even the founder sure do try).
The official stance of the Nostradamus Mabus Project is that there
are no experts.
If you read the book of Nostradamus, The same book that the Nostradamus

The Nostradamus Mabus Project has also included a forum where everyone
can discuss what they understand from the quatrains. In actuality,
it's the closest you will ever get to fully understanding what he
wrote since it is filled with people that have read the book and many
