Nostradamus is playing a very clever word game in this verse; A game that we explore further in our eBooks.
Of the churches dedicated in the primal Roman manner,
They will reject [and mock] their base principals of foundation:
Embracing their original and human laws,
Expelling all but a few of the cults of the saints.
The verse relates to a point in time when certain distorted beliefs will be rejected, and all the paraphernalia, including the buildings themselves will be thrown away or destroyed.
