The Prophecies of Nostradamus: Quote of the Week

Devant Moustier trouve enfant besson,
D'heroic sang de moine et vetusique,
Son bruit par secte langue et puissance son,
Qu'on dira fort esleve le vopisque.

Meanings of the French words deemed appropriate

Devant= Before, formerly. Moustier; all authors render it Monastery, but none offer an explanation: monastere, is French and monaster-ium, Latin for Monastery. I am inclined to think it maybe a place, or person, or word play? Besson. A twin, twin-like, born together, of one birth. Moine= a monk. Vestusique, is a bastardisation of Vestales= Vestal Virgins, the nuns of the heathenish Romans, or as Vestal, or from Latin see [A]. Puissance= Power, or powerfulness; force, might, strength; ability, wealth, sway, authority, jurisdiction; also, a power, army, or great number of men. Esleve= elected, elevated, raised, chosen. [A] Vetustique, from the Latin, vetust-as-atis= age, ancient times, antiquity. Both Edgar Leoni. & Jean-Charles de Fontbrune. Suggest that Vopisque, end of line 4, is from the Latin Vopiscus? And Jean-Charles de Fontbrune, further writes that it is Vospisque in old French: but I find neither word. They say it means, 'the healthy survivor of prematurely born twins?' seems very odd to me, I suspect the word intended has been bastardised to rhyme with vetustique, end of line 2, as Nostradamus so often does. I find from Latin, volpes-volpis=vulpis=fox: craftiness, cunning? There are only 2 characters I see in history to whom this verse might apply, and neither has appeared on the world stage yet. However, I wish to say nothing more at this time.

Thus, we might translate

Before a moustier a twin child found,
Of the heroic bloodline of a monk and a virgin:
His fame through sect language and power his,
That one will say strongly, elect the cunning one.
