The Book Of Prophecy Summary

The Book Of Prophecy by Geoffrey Ashe

Prophets and their predictions have intrigued, amazed and disturbed humankind throughout recorded history, and in the mysterious realms of myth and legend. Geoffrey Ashe presents here a factual, learned, but easily accessible overview of major and minor prophecy, from the oracles at Delphi to modern attempts to find the future in dreams and horoscopes. Ashe's eclectic approach brings fresh insight into the subject, including Biblical prophecy, prophetic elements in the works of Dante and Milton, and Merlin's so-called prophecies and the 'return' of King Arthur. Ashe also addresses the confusion about the famous seer Nostradamus, clearing away the extravagant claims of some of his interpreters and scrutinising anew his genuinely impressive predictions.
