The lost thing is found, hidden for so many centuries,
Pasteur will be honored as a demigod
This happens when the moon completes her great cycle,
He will be dishonored by other winds.
This quatrain predicts the discovery of Pasteur. As a doctor, Nostradamus was himself very concerned with the mysterious nature of the plague and apparently made a link between running water, still water and the persistence of the plague.
Louis Pasteur was the scientist who discovered the existence of microscopic germs. Critics also accused Pasteur of faking his results, which is what Nostradamus may have meant by, dishonored by other winds.
