Notre Dame SHOCK claim: Did Nostradamus predict END of humanity after cathedral fire?

The quote asserted “when the great cathedral glows red, so will begin the descent of man”. Nostradamus was a 16th-century French astrologer, regarded by some as having predicted a range of future events. However according to analysis from fact-checking website Snopes.com Nostradamus never wrote the alleged words in any of his primary works.

Nostradamus is best known for his Les Propheties, a collection of poems first published in 1555.

According to many of his admirers, the book has correctly predicted a range of major world events.

However the quote spread after the Notre-Dame blaze does not feature in the book according to Snopes.com.

The website commented: “The quote appears to be a modern invention falsely attributed to Nostradamus in order to generate likes, shares and comments.
