Description:
1720 1ed Brussels Massacre Belgium Sacrament of Miracle Judaica Jews

A rare historical account of the Sacrament of Miracle by Petrus Cafmeyer. The Sacrament of Miracle, also known as the Brussels Massacre, was an anti-Semitic riot in Brussels in 1370 in which a number of Jews were killed and banished from Brussels in connection with a host desecration at the synagogue. Christians claimed that a Jew stabbed a host and was not harmed – an event that lead to the establishment of the Cult of the Miracle.

This rare 1720 first edition was written by Petrus de Cafmeyer and published in Brussels. Illustrated with 21 fascinating engravings depicting scenes from the massacre.

1689 NOSTRADAMUS Prophecies Astrology Astronomy Occult Visions Prophecy RARE

"From the enslaved populace, songs,
Chants and demands
While princes and lords are held captive in prisons.
These will in the future by headless idiots
Be received as divine prayers."
– Nostradamus, prediction of the French Revolution

Nostradamus, considered, perhaps, the most famous prophetical seer, has been credited with prophesying important and impactful world events such as the French Revolution, Great London Fire, and reigns of Napoleon and Hitler. Nostradamus claimed that the basis for his "Prophecies" was founded in his judgment of astrology. He was heavily criticized by astrologers for being 'incompetent,' as no one could truly predict the future.
This rare 1689 Bordeaux edition features a fine, woodcut engraving on the title page and includes over 300 Nostradamus prophecies and visions.

From the Preface: "CAN "THE RIDDLE OF THE UNIVERSE" BE SOLVED? SINCE THE DAWN OF recorded history men have tried, but "the riddle" still remains. They failed, and all because they lacked the one essential--the key to Causation. This is the master key that unlocks all mysteries, but that key was lost in the spiritual night of the past 6,000 years. In that mythopoeic age that preceded this, men knew vastly more about Causation and Creation than he does today, but knowing also that an age of darkness was coming upon the world, the wise Initiates hid… Read More
