century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
The great Pontiff taken prisoner while navigating,
The great one thereafter to fail, clergy in turmoil,
2nd one elected, but his estate to declines in his absence,
His favourite bastard beaten to death.
Through the deserts of the free and untamed places,
The nephew of the great Pontiff will come to roam,
Struck down by 7 with heavy branches,
By those afterwards will occupy the Chalice (cyphe.)
Roman Pontiff guard your approach
To the new city that 2 rivers run through,
Near there you will spit your blood,
You and yours when the rose flourishes.
