Papal Prophecies

Century 2, Quatrain 93

Very near the Tiber Death threatens:
Shortly before great inundation:
The captain of the ship taken, thrown into the bilge:
The Castle and Palace in conflagration.

The Tiber normally stands for Rome; the ship could signify the Barque of St. Peter. This quatrain implies that a pope will come to a dreadful end just before a great flood. The castle and palace would be St. Angelo and the Vatican.


Century 5, Quatrain 49

Not from Spain but from ancient France
Will one be elected for the trembling ship,
To the enemy will a promise be made
Who will cause a cruel plague during his reign.

It appears that there will be two main candidates for the papacy: one Spanish or Latin/South American and one French. The French candidate will be elected; this pope will try to compromise an enemy without success.


Century 10, Quatrain 65

O vast Rome, your ruin approaches,
Not of your walls, of your lifeblood and substance:
The one harsh of letters will make a so horrible a notch,
Pointed steel driven all the way up to the hilt.

Assassination attempt on a pope?


Century 10, Quatrain 70

Through an object the eye will swell very much,
Burning so much that the snow will fall:
The fields watered will come to shrink,
As the primate succumbs at Reggio.

No pope has yet died at Reggio. Possibly a quatrain to watch for future events.


Century 10, Quatrain 93

The new barque will go on voyages,
Far and near they will transfer the Empire:
Beaucaire, Arles will retain the hostages,
Nearby, two columns of Porphyry found.

There has long been a legend that the papacy will leave Rome at the time of the Millennium. Cheetham sees this as referring to that future possibility. See also the following quatrain.


Century 2, Quatrain 41

The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear:
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country.


Century 8, Quatrain 93

No more [than] seven months will he hold the office of prelate,
Through his death a great schism will arise:
Seven months another will hold the prelacy,
Near Venice peace, union reinstated.
