500 Years in Print

Some of Nostradamus' predictions that have come to past include details of the French Revolution , the rise of Napoléon, the Great Fire of London in the 17th century, the work of Louis Pasteur, Hitler and World War II, and of course the rise and fall of many European monarchs. More recently, the interpreters of Nostradamus have been debating whether or not he predicted the coming conflict with Iran.
