Michel de Nostredame (December 1503 - July 2, 1566) is most commonly known today as Nostradamus. He was an apothecary and was -- and is -- known as a prophet and a seer. His book, "Les Propheties," was written in 1555 and has been in print virtually consistently ever since. People still read his quatrains to try to predict what is to come, or to explain what has happened.
