The Lost Book of Nostradamus
A mysterious book full of cryptic prophesies has just been found deep in the archives of the National Library in Rome. Evidence suggests that this is the last book of the great French seer, Nostradamus.
This startling find is as startling as the prophesies it contained which surely were blasphemous in its day. Nostradamus escaped the Inquisition only because prophesy and astrology were not considered heretical.
In 1994, Italian journalist Enza Massa was at the Italian National Library in Rome when she stumbled upon an unusual find. It was a manuscript dating to 1629, titled: Nostradamus Vatinicia Code. Michel de Notredame, the author's name, was on the inside in indelible ink. The book contains cryptic and bizarre images along with over eighty watercolor paintings by the master visionary himself. Follow the investigative trail of how the manuscript was found in the archives and exactly how it got there. New insight is given into the life of Nostradamus and his relationship with Pope Urban VIII, who knew about this manuscript and in whose possession it was for many years.
The Lost Book Of Nostradamus will premier this Sunday Oct 28, 2007, 9pm/8c on The History Channel. (Also to see Monday, October 29 01:00 AM and Saturday, November 03 05:00 PM)
