The Quotes in this section are related to the works of Lux Nova and his studies and analysis of the Works and Prophecies of Nostradamus. Lux Nova provides separate themed books of Nostradamus Prophecies, each of which can be accessed in the Secret Vault. This Quote or 'Extract' if you prefer, draws reference from the following books by Lux Nova:
Par l'univers sera fait un monarque
Qu'en paix et vie ne sera longuement:
Lors se perdra la piscature barque,
Sera regie en plus grand detriment.
The French is rendered the same by all authors except Jean-Charles de Fontbrune. Who has 'vnuiers'.
'vnivers' the universe, or universal world.
Longuement. Longly, tediously, at length, long time, lastingly, of much continuance, a great while. (whenever you come across a French word ending in 'ment', in translation, it will add 'ing', or 'ly', to the end of the English word, unless the English does not allow it. Test it yourself, look up French words ending in 'ment' in the Nostradamus related dictionary we have put up.)
However, having stated the above, Nostradamus has purposely used the wrong ending of the word, to make it rhyme with 'detriment' end of line four
Perdra. Will be lost, will lose, will be spoiled, marred, let go, forsaken, cast away or aside.
Qui ne retire de sa vache
que la queue ne perd pas tout.
He that recovers but the tail of his cow,
loses not all his cow; or,
better save a little than lose all.
Regie: f. ruled, governed, commanded, swayed, guided, directed.
Detriment. SAME. Par. (a preposition, as the Latin Per; signifies;) by, through; of, by reason of; for; on. Sera=will be. Faict=made, done, wrought, forged, composed, framed; fashioned; performed, exploited; achieved, compassed; finished, accomplished. Paix=peace. Vie= life. Ne=not, neither. Plus grand= even, more, much, great=greater.
Piscature. Is a made-up word, combining Pisces, the sign of the fish, and cat, as Catholic Church, and 'ure' as 'eur' signifying of or belonging to. Thus, the Church of Peter, in the Age of Pisces; (1BC-AD, to, 2160AD.)
Barque. The word is no different in reality to our English word Barge, and no different at all from the Barques, used to ferry the Pharaoh's of Egypt, up and down the Nile. The Egyptians pretended that the Sun god was ferried, or pulled across the heavens every day in his Sun Barque, before the Scarab beetle took its place, and later the Greeks gave him a chariot. (see the book on the sign of Cancer.)
The verse is about the failing of the Catholic Church, in the future, or the monarch, come pope who rules for a short while, just before the Fox, the Last Pope.
One monarch (pope) will be elected to rule the entire (Catholic) world,
Who in peace and life will not last very long:
Then the faith of the Church of St Peter will be lost,
And ruled to its greater destruction.
