Nostradamus: names of militant religious family from 16th-22ndC
C1 Q35The young lion overcomes the older one,
in a field of combat in single fight:
He will pierce his eyes in their golden cage;
two wounds in one then he dies a cruel death.
Le lyon jeune le vieux ſurmontera
En champ bellique par ſingulier duelle
Dans caige d'or les yeux luy creuera
Deux claſſes vne puis mourir, mort cruelle

In order to get names other than those in the list above I firstly relied on names of people with whom Nostradamus was known to be in contact and those whom he would have known of and possibly met because of their prominence in the places where he had grown up and spent most of his life. Marguerite d' Angouleme and her family were obvious names to search for as were the family and contacts of Jules Scaliger of Agen.
Most searches based on guesswork turn out to have no anagrams and that is true with names of people as well. But the two focal points named above proved to not only have anagrams for names but they occurred in verses where events described in the text could easily be applied to spectacular aspects of those people's lives.
The two verses alongside illustrate the process. C1 Q35 shown above left was the most prominent prophecy that established Nostradamus' reputation. Four years after being published and a year after all 942 verses were published this verse became renowned for its accuracy in describing the accidental death of King Henry II of France. He died in a jousting contest in which his opponent's lance shattered and pierced his eye through the gap in the King's helmet. Now one of the names of his opponent was Gabriel de Lorges. There is only one anagram for de Lorges in the prophecies and it occurs in the third line of C1 Q35. To the best of my knowledge I am the only person in the last 500 years to discover that connection so my finding it was through the sephirot / cipher / anagram process I am describing not by any previous pointer or hint.
C5 Q39Issued from the true branch of the fleur-de-lis,
Placed and lodged as heir of Etruria
His ancient blood woven by long hand,
Causing the escutcheon of Florence to bloom.
Du vray rameau de fleur de lys iſſu
Mis et loge heritier d'Hetrurie
Son ſang antique de longue main tiſſu
Fera Florence florir en l'armoirie
In finding these it became apparent that these prophecies may have been part of his 16thC project and Marguerite and her associates then being his likely patrons and supporters in a quest that suited their own ends. And the religious political revolutionary events to which these people seemed to have a link indicated that the heretical independent spirit of Southern France that drew people to Angouleme influenced him as well.
One of the places where Nostradamus is accredited as living adds to this connection. In the early 1520s Nostradamus spent time in Alet-les-Bains, a region of the Pyrenees that abounds in legends of Christ's blood line having taken up residence in nearby towns in the first century of the Christian Era.
It was therefore natural for me to search for words such as Magdalene and Mary and their alternate forms. What became apparent as I conducted that search was that they mostly occurred in verses with a religious tone where there was a hint of heresy. But accompanying them were repetitive clusters of similar letters from which names could be deduced. One of these names is that of Hautpul which is the name of a resident in Chateau les Rennes at the time that Nostradamus was in nearby Alet-les-Bains. These two places are only eight kilometers apart.
Now for all the deficiencies inherent in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code the narrative behind that story had its base in the same legends to which Nostradamus was exposed in the 16thC. Therefore I had cause to see validity in these connections, encouraging me to pursue the other name generating clusters from which I produced the list on which this Sephirot is based. Its main products are those for Magdaleine, Angelim, Hautpul but others result via their repetition in the text and anagrams and known ties to the history of the Royal Bourbon line.
Throughout his work Nostradamus relies on the known to give guidance to the form that future events will take and hence the 16thC century and earlier blood line of Christ would have been of interest to him. There is the reasonable possibility that Nostradamus' livelihood and protection came from support by others who saw his prophetic ability as a help to a secret quest. At that time it is known there was an ongoing interest in Southern France to restore a legendary foundational Christian royal line to the throne of France. So the contribution made by holders of that 16thC blood line was a probable foundation for Nostradamus throughout his life. And out of this came his need to record what he experienced in regard to the genetically inspired events he foresaw for our time.
The 16thC family entries are then a simple but essential device to limit speculation that might arise in the future. It is true that being hidden, the value of future people's names was very limited for his patrons but it was most probably part of his vocation. By selecting names that reflected dual identities in parallel events he could satisfy the demands of different eras. As such the anagrams rather than his text offered him the best base to identify religious traumas in the late sixteenth century and times yet to come. And to this end the Sephirot that follows illustrates how he used events in the late sixteenth century as a guide for the late twenty-first century. See my papers on Henry IV, Marguerite d'Angouleme and Jeane d'Albret for evidence of the material about the 16th century that exists in Nostradamus' work.
It is true and therefore quite unremarkable that the late sixteenth century was part of Nostradamus' future but in choosing to present the unproven visions, he recorded two versions, one for his patrons which was more visible and one not. In doing so he achieved another goal; he provided us with a clear secondary message I know what I am foreseeing is valid so what I foresee for my own time is a good basis for you to judge my visions of yours.
..How long that time in which I have several times predicted long before each [event ] happened, and their particular regions too attributing all as being made factual by divine inspiration. ..
..kingdoms, sects, and regions will change to the diametric opposite of that seen in the present day. If I had drawn up events as they will happen the people of that realm, sect, religion and faith, would find it so bad that they would listen to fantasies and come to damn that which future centuries will know through seeing and perceiving. ....But now I want to reach out and declare happenings of common interest through incomprehensible and perplexing sentences about future causes. The most urgent are those in which I perceive some human mutation and for which I must find a way that is inoffensive to the weakest ear. Nostradamus' Preface to Cesar (PCE1 & PCE2).
