Comment by Van Berkel

Source text: 2000-Chomarat-facsimile
Croistra le nombre si grand des astronomes
Chassez,bannis & liures censurez,
L'an mil six cens & sept par sacre glomes
Que nul aux sacres ne seront asseurez.

Translation (Van Berkel, 2002)
The number of astronomers will become very great,:
Driven out, banished and their books censured:
The year sixteen hundred and seven by holy assemblies,
Such that none will be safe from the holy ones.

Van Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a year quatrain.
The lowest year number in the quatrains is the year 580, mentioned in quatrain 06-02. The highest year number is the year 1999, mentioned in quatrain 10-72. These numbers are smaller than 2242, the number of years of the time span of the quatrains. This led to the "reference number system".
The idea on which the reference number system is based, is that the years, mentioned in the quatrains, are not years, but reference numbers in the series of years between 1555 and 3797, the time span of the quatrains.
This quatrain will be fulfilled in 3162 (1555 + 1607).

Croistra le nombre si grand des astronomes
Chassez, bannis & liures censurez.
L'an mil six cens & sept par sacre glomes
Que nul aux sacres ne seront asseurez.

Translation (Wöllner, 1926)
Die Zahl der durch die heilige Inquisition verjagten
und mit dem Bann belegten Sternkundigen und der verbotenen Bücher
wächst mächtig an um das Jahr 1607,
und niemand wird vor ihr sicher sein.

Wöllner interprets the third line as a reference to 1607 AD. He sees a connection between this quatrain and Galileo Galilei, whose book, in which he defended the theses of Copernicus, was published in 1613 and forbidden by the Church in 1616. Wöllner does not mention an astrological configuration.[1]
