If we want to understand Nostradamus truly, it is necessary to give some attention to the views of magic he entertained and to learn from his own mouth, for instance, which readers he proposed to address… Or in what manner he tried to cultivate the spirit of prophecy and the divine gift with which he was endowed.“Let those who read these verses meditate them seriously,” Nostradamus says here. “Let the profane and ignorant vulgar not handle them!” – Astrologers, together with “fools and savages” (sic!) have to stand off… And he who acts contrary to this statement, will be “cursed according to the rites of magic”.
