Berkel, T.W.M.: Nostradamus, Astrologie en de Bijbel
Een onderzoek van zijn profetieŽn en brieven
1980, the author examined the quatrains and letters of
Nostradamus in order to reconstruct Nostradamus' methods and to
evaluate the value of his predictions. He based himself upon the
way astrology was practiced in the Renaissance, the era in which
Nostradamus lived. It is a thorough study, in which astrological
methods and ideas which today are unknown for most people, are
reconstructed and explained and connected with quatrains in the
prophecies of Nostradamus. Like this, he also establishes
fulfilment data of some quatrains in a way we did not see before
in Dutch Nostradamus literature. For some quatrains, he
reconstructs horary charts which are supposed to be the
fundament of predictions by Nostradamus; Berkel also
reconstructs some methods of location and regions. For Berkel,
the final conclusion is clear: the "Prophecies of Nostradamus"
is a major eschatological work.
