Who Was Nostradamus?

Michel de Nostredame or Nostradamus is one of the most famous people that are known for their predictions, in the world. He was born on December 14th, 1503, in France and has been educated through much schooling.

Nostradamus was Jewish but he later converted to Catholicism but would still study the Jewish culture and occult literature. He also loved things like astrology, Latin, Hebrew, and Greek.


Nostradamus had many loves and so he went to France to study medicine and he got a bachelor’s degree in this where he would later use healing as a natural thing to help people that had gotten the Black Plague.

When Nostradamus was 26, he went to Mont Peller and continued to study so that he could get his Doctorate degree. He was popular in his school, and he was taken under the care of the doctors there to study more medicine for a year longer.

After he left Mont Peller though, he decided to get married with a lady that he fell in love with. They would have two children. The problem was though that this was a time of sickness and disease and his children, and his wife died of disease.


As the Inquisition of Spain was happening, Nostradamus wanted no part of it, so he went to Italy and started teaching others alchemy and astrology. He worked to figure out how to stop the plague from spreading and was valued for his medical contributions and the spiritual thoughts that he had.

He later moved to Salon de Croix and married again. He then wrote a book entitled, “Traute des Fardmens,” and it helped him to learn more about apothecaries and healers.

Other Books and Predictions

In 1555, Nostradamus had written another book that had over 300 different predictions in it. Some of the predictions that he is known for include:

  • Death of Henry II, the husband of the French Queen, Catherine de’ Medici.
  • Presidential assassinations.
  • Iraqi war.
  • 9/11.
  • Things about disease, death, and famine.

Psychic History

No one really realize that Nostradamus had a history of having psychic powers and they later found out when his son Caesar gathered many of the prophecies that he had written and had them published after Nostradamus died.

The prophecies confused people and they still confuse people today. Some wonder how he knows so much about the future and even though he was considered a man with high intelligence, it was hard for people to believe that he would know things that would happen so far after his death.

There are many scholars that believe that Nostradamus was right on various things while others are still trying to decide what is true and what isn’t. Regardless, he is one of the most known for making predictions that have proven to be true.
