Letter to Henry - The Seventh Millennium

Original text (laut Ausgabe 1568)

[396]...toutesfois esperant de laisser par escrit les ans, villes, citez, regions où la plus part aduiendra, mesmes de l'annee 1585 & de l'annee 1606, accommencant depuis le temps present, qui est le 14. de Mars, 1557 & passant outre bien loing iusques à l'aduenement qui sera apres au commencement du septiesme millenaire profondement [443] supputé,...

Translation:
...nethertheless, I hope to leave a record in writing of the years, towns, cities and regions in which most of the events will come to pass, even those of the year 1585 and of the year 1606, starting with the present time, which is March 14, 1557, an going far beyond to the event which will take place at the beginning of the seventh millenary, as far as I have calculated thoroughly...

There is another date on the end of the letter, June 27, 1558. And in the Letter to Caesar [C 1335] Nostradamus wrote: "...& sont perpetuelles vaticinations, pour d'yci à l'an 3797." - ...and they are perpetual prophecies, that extend from now until the year 3797. "From now" is March 1st, 1555, the date at the end of the letter.

Why does Nostradamus give such different dates? Because they have special functions for the decoding.

For the date June 27th, 1558, see Quatrains per century.

The date March 14th, 1557, tells us the beginning of the seventh millennium, as Nostradamus writes in the letter: ..commencement de septiesme millenaire!

Let us put the numbers into a table:

 commencement du septiesme millenaire
 1557
 1585
 1606
 14
 3 (=March)


Calculation:

1585 - 1557 = 28
1606 - 1585 = 21
28 - 21 = 7

14 - 3 = 11
14 x 2 = 28
14 : 2 = 7
14 + 7 = 21
(14 x 3)x (14 - 3) = 42 x 11 = 462

We get once more the numbers 28, 21 and 7, but also a new one: 462
The last number allows to transfer the cycle of years (1557, 1585 and 1606) to the 21st century, like this:

1557 + 462 2019 
    + 14 
    2033 
    + 14 
1585 + 462 2047 
    + 21 
1606 + 462 2068 

The year 2033, standing exactly between 2019 and 2047 was the result, that Nostradamus wanted to show: the beginning of the seventh millennium, the change from the year 6000 to the year 6001 Anno Mundi.

The year 2033 AD (Anno Domini = AC) is equal to the year 6000 AM (Anno Mundi)

It is possible to prove this result, because Nostradamus writes in the Almanac for the year 1562, and also in that one for the year 1566, the correlated AM-year: 1562 = 5529 and 1566 = 5533, so we get once more for the year 6000 AM the result 2033 AD.

What's with the date March 1st, 1555? That's the 1.3.1555. If we cut off the last figure 5 from 1555 we get 155. We calculate 155 x 3 = 465 - (5+1-3) = 462. This is exact the same number as we got above, to transfer the cycles. There is a second possibility of calculation: If we cut the first figure from 1555 we get 555. The date 1.3. gives 31 and 555 - (31 x 3) = 462.
