Synopsis of L’oeuvre du Vieux Moine : Vol 1, Le dernier chemin des Templiers:

According to Rudy Cambier, the real author of the centuries is not Nostradamus but the 15th abbot of the great Cistercian abbey of Cambron, Yves de Lessines. “The Old Monk” indicates the path to follow to find the hidden goods of the Temple, by naming the places, even by describing their particularities. The multiplicity of toponyms still in use today in the Pays des Collines straddling Flanders and Hainaut, is one of the major arguments of Rudy Cambier’s demonstration.

Kept in the abbey library, the manuscript of the Old Monk was stolen in the 16th century by a certain Nostradamus. Rudy Cambier, in his research, explores a first trap: the Provençal of the 16th century, who published the centuries under the name of Nostradamus, spoke a 16th century language but with heavy slag from ancient French from the Middle Ages. Second trap: in the salmigondis of a Provencal from the south who jabbered French hid Picard, Flemish, Germanic words. Worst of all: these words, obviously, Nostradamus had not understood the meaning!

It is from this first observation that all of Rudy Cambier’s research started. Which shows that the centuries are not prophecies. That it is a book of stories and of a story in particular: that of the Order of the Temple and its destruction by Philippe le Bel. The Templars were able to save their archives and part of their treasure by transporting them outside the territories of the King of France. Rudy Cambier is a philologist and medievalist.
