Nostradamus

 

Most of the researches on the Prophecies of Nostradamus have an "exegetic" nature. Many Century-scholars try to explain the meaning of quatrains and predictions and try to discover the underlying sources. Only few Century-scholars occupy themselves with research on the source texts, written by or attributed to Nostradamus.
In this section, two outstanding French research projects are presented, one by Robert Benazra, the other one by Jacques Halbronn D.Litt.
In the index below, all publications are listed in chronological order, beginning with the most recent publication.

 

 THE RESEARCH PROJECT OF DR. JACQUES HALBRONN 

2011 - present

Jacques Halbronn's researches
This sextion, published on www.propheties.it, the Nostradamus-website of Mario Gregorio, contains scans of Halbronn's large collection of books about prophecies in general and most notably Nostradamus, covering a time span from 1547 to 1587, and the more than one hundred studies on Nostradamus and the Centuries which Halbronn has written from 2011.

  2009

Guidelines for Nostradamus research (November 16, 2009)
In this article, originally written as a preparation for an interview by the National Geographic, Halbronn clearly and comprehensively describes the present state of affairs of his research on Nostradamus and the Centuries and presents a survey of his main findings, notably in connection with the origin of the Centuries and the part in it, played by forgers.

2008

Les deux quatrains "86" du couronnement (September 14, 2008)
In this article, Halbronn explains why in his eyes the compilation of the quatrains 04-86 and 09-86 date from 1593, when in France a new king had to be appointed. Halbronn links quatrain 04-86 to Charles III de Lorraine, one of the pretenders to the throne, a link which is confirmed by the astrological references in this quatrain, and quatrain 09-86 to Henri de Navarre, who eventually became king and carried the name Henry IV. 
In connection with the dating of the compilation of these quatrains in 1593, Halbronn discusses matters like the road along which the Centuries eventually were published as a book and the dating of the earliest Century-editions which consist of ten centuries.

2007

Le Dominicain Giffré de Réchac (1604-1660) et la naissance de la critique nostradamique, au XVIIe siècle (May 26, 2007)
On October 20, 2007, Halbronn has defended his post-doctoral dissertation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, entitled Le Dominicain Giffré de Réchac (1604-1660) et la naissance de la critique nostradamique, au XVIIe siècle, in which he discusses the history of nostradamic critic. 
In his Letter on Nostradamus (July 17, 2003), Halbronn explained the readers of www.nostradamusresearch.org the nature of his research on Nostradamus and the Centuries and some of his findings, as described in e.g. his thesis
Le texte prophétique en France. Formation et fortune and his articles on Espace Nostradamus
On May 26, 2007, invited by www.nostradamusresearch.org, Halbronn has written a contribution in which he presents a brief summary of his post-doctoral dissertation. In this contribution, he discusses the developments and findings during the past years in his research on Nostradamus and the Centuries.

2005

La Grande Conjonction: section Estudes Nostradamiennes
Since October 2004, Halbronn publishes the monthly online-magazine La Grande Conjonction. In #11 (December 2005-January 2006), he started the section Estudes Nostradamiennes, which contains new publications by Halbronn regarding his new findings in the investigation of the nostradamic oeuvre. 

2003

Documentation Iconographique Astro-Prophétique (DIAP)
This contribution to CURA, which is a result of cooperation between Halbronn and Guinard, includes more than 150 pictures of publications in the astrological-prophetic field, coming from Halbronn's Bibliotheca Astrologica. These publications are categorized as follows:

2003

Letter on Nostradamus (July 17, 2003)
Being invited by www.nostradamusresearch.org to describe his research project,  Jacques Halbronn explains - in English - the most important aspects of his research on Michel de Nostredame.

2002

Reflexions sur les méthodes de travail des nostradamologues
In this article, also published on CURA, Halbronn poses the question if it is enough in bibliographic research on the work of Nostradamus to orient oneself on the name of Nostradamus as the author and the year of issue. Regarding this question, Halbronn discusses the various editions of the Centuries, sources upon which the Centuries might be based, Almanachs and Pronostications and numerous other publications. In the end, he presents a chronology of editions of the Centuries which, according to him, are counterfeited.

2002

Michel de Nostredame face à la critique nostradamique
In this article, published on CURA, the website, edited by dr. Patrice Guinard, Halbronn briefly argues why, according to his opinion, the editions of the Centuries which carry the most early years of edition (among which those of 1555 and 1557) are published after the decease of Nostradamus in 1566 and are the result of a "revision" of authentic material which is no longer current. He discusses references in a book by Jean de la Daguenière, a comtemporary of Nostradamus, and supposes that he does not refer to the Centuries as we know them today. Halbronn also discusses a compilation of nostradamian quatrain verses by Antoine Crespin, another comtemporary of Nostradamus, and treats the fact that Crespin did not use the Centuries 05, 06 and 07, which carry the year of issue 1557 and the name of the Lyonese publisher Antoine du Rosne. 

2002

Documents inexploités sur le phénomène Nostradamus
In this book Halbronn presents his insights and ideas about the authenticity the nostradamian oeuvre. He analyses the Epistle to Henry II which precedes the Présages Merveilleux pour 1557 and evaluates the authenticity of the Epistle to Henry II which precedes the eighth, ninth and tenth century. He takes consequences of the absence of quatrain verses, belonging to the fifth, sixth and seventh century, in a compilation of quatrain verses, taken from the Centuries, in Crespin's Prophéties à la Puissance divine. Generally, it is assumed that the fifth, sixth and seventh century were first published in 1557. Finally, he presents the Sixains de Morgard, which book includes an interpretation key. 

2002 - 2006

Espace Nostradamus and Encyclopaedia Hermetica
Jacques Halbronn wrote a large number of articles about a.o. Nostradamus, astrology, the Aquarian age and prophetism. These articles are available online on Benazra's websites, mentioned above.
In the articles about Nostradamus which Halbronn wrote until now, he describes the advances and new insights of his research, which in 2002 lead to the publication of Documents inexploités sur le phénomène Nostradamus.

Une influence de la Kabbale dans l'oeuvre de Nostradamus?
A contribution in French by Robert Benazra on CURA, the website of the Centre Universitaire de Recherche en Astrologie, edited by dr. Patrice Guinard. Benazra argues that a number of phrases in the Preface to Cesar and the Epistle to Henry II point to cabbalistic influences. Benazra also discusses the structure which might be hidden behind the year 1557, mentioned in the Epistle to Henry II, and the year 3797, mentioned in the Preface to Cesar, and also discusses, from a Jewish point of view on the Centuries,  the classic "seven climates" and World War II.
