Revue de presse :

Fascinating and extensively researched.--The Washington Post A solid and enlightening story of a man who, whether you believe the pro-prophecy crowd or not, led a fascinating life.--Booklist Gerson deftly explains the lure of Nostradamus.--Kirkus Reviews A vibrant and vivid account of a complex humanist of untold sympathy and generosity. Gerson leads us through a life mirroring the Renaissance: its humanism, its religious strife, its mix of occult and nascent science, and its poetry. With uncommon clarity and elegance Gerson draws into his portrait of Nostradamus events of his own life and ours. This eminently accessible and informative biography is also an enthralling history: it unravels the enigmas of a heralded individual responding to the doubt and fear about a world that are cause for us to reflect on our own.--Tom Conley, Abbot Lawrence Lowell Professor, Depts. of Romance Languages and Visual/Environmental Studies, Harvard University In this brave and impeccable work of scholarship, Stephane Gerson accomplishes what dozens of writers have failed to for generations: he brings a truly engaging and incisive reckoning to the life and afterlife of Nostradamus. Gerson's book is a historical journey that will leave you by turns delighted and astonished. It is difficult to imagine it being surpassed.--Mitch Horowitz, author of Occult America: White House Seances, Ouija Circles, Masons, and The Secret Mystic History of Our Nation Stephane Gerson's Nostradamus is an exemplary piece of scholarship and critical sophistication. This book represents the best of cultural studies and is a must for anyone interested in early modern studies and its importance today. Reading Gerson is an extraordinary intellectual adventure. --Lawrence D. Kritzman, John D. Willard Prof of French and Comparative Literature, Dartmouth College "Stephane Gerson has written a remarkable book about a renaissance astrologer and prophet,

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Who was Nostradamus? In this new biography, historian Stephane Gerson takes readers back in time to explore the life and afterlife of Michel de Nostredame, the astrologer whose Prophecies have been transformed into today's Gospel of Doom. Whenever we enter a new era, Nostradamus offers certainty and solace. In 1666, guests at posh English dinner parties discussed his quatrain about the Great Fire of London. In 1942, Irene Nemirovsky latched her hopes for survival to Nostradamus' prediction that the war would soon end. And on September 12, 2001, Brooklyn teenagers proclaimed that this guy, Nostradamus had seen 9/11 coming. Through prodigious research in European and American archives, Gerson chronicles the life of this mystifying figure and our lasting fascination with his predictions.

In 1666, guests at posh English dinner parties discussed his quatrains about the Great Fire of London.

In his new book about this fascinating figure, Stephane Gerson takes readers on a journey through the life and after-life of Michel de Nostrademe, the Renaissance astrologer who became known as Nostradamus, the man whose Prophecies have been pored over, interpreted, and finally been transformed into The Gospel of Doom for the modern age.
