The poetic prophecies of the 1600s French occultist, Nostradamus, are an increasingly fashionable form of divination.
His book, THE CENTURIES consists of a hundred verses composed in quatrains. His colorful and highly metaphorical language has resulted in a variety of translations. Nostradamus' oblique writings have been credited with predicting the assassination of the Kennedy's and the rise of Hitler. Some thought the French work, "hister" in one of Nostradamus' quatrains was an anagram for Hitler.
