"Mirabilis Liber"

A collection of predictions concerning the saints and the sibyls, attributed to Saint Césaire (470-542 C.E.). The work has appeared in various editions. In the edition of 1522 there is found a prophecy of the French Revolution, including the expulsion and abolition of the nobility, the violent death of the king and queen, the persecution of the clergy, and the suppression of convents. It was followed by a further prophecy that the eagle coming from distant lands would reestablish order in France.
