Pierre Vincenti (Corsica, 1874-1942) was in his days a well-known occultist who published under the name of Pierre or P.V. Piobb. According to P.V. Piobb, the prophecies of Nostradamus were not written by Nostradamus, but by the Templars, and the true nature of the texts is that of ‘instructions given beyond time, to future individuals’. Piobb argues that the Centuries in fact are a coded manual.
There are, in fact, a lot of quatrains in the Centuries, referring to a Temple and a treasure. Quatrain 1 of fifth Century (Q1, C5), for instance speaks of a ‘celtic ruin’ and two who argue in the Temple. One of them, mounted on a steed, will get a pike and a dagger in his hart. This ‘great one’ will be buried without making any noise.
Q7, C9 seems to be telling us of a curse, or a booby trap, or maybe it’s a threat: evil will come to the person who opens the tomb that was found and closes it promptly. And we will be unable to prove if he would be better a Breton or a Norman King.
Q81, C11 speaks openly of a treasure placed by ‘Hesperian citizens’ in the secret place of a temple. The temple is opened by ‘hungry bonds’, retaken, ravished and with ‘a horrible prey in the midst’.
Q9, C6 says that in the sacred temples scandals will be perpetrated, but they will be reckoned as honours. The end of one whom they engrave medals of silver and gold will come in strangs torments.
Q16, C6 tells us about something that will be carried off ‘by the young Hawk and by the Normans of France and Picardy’. The black ones of the temple of the Black Forest will make an inn and fire of Lombardy.
I’ll give you the full quatrain Q13, C10 in the original French:
Soulz la pasture d’animaux ruminants
Par eux conduicts au ventre herbipolique
Soldats cachez, les armes bruit menants,
Non loing temptez de cité Antipolique.
‘Soulz la pasture d’animaux ruminants’ can be translated as ‘beneath the food of ruminating animals’. Beneath this… hay, for example… there are soldiers hidden, their arms are making a noise. The ruminating animals lead the soldiers to an underground place of city with a name that has ‘herbe’ in it (grass, herb, weed). They are ‘tempted’ (?) not far from ‘Antipolique’, which is – in southern France – the mediterranean city of Antibes with its old Greek port.
Interestingly, immediately after the arrests of the Templars in their Paris headquarters, the agents of the French King Philip the Fair found out the Templar treasure had vanished, as had almost the entire Templar naval fleet. At his own trial, Templar sergeant John of Chalons confessed that some of the Templars had been tipped off about the arrests. A group of 24 knights managed to smuggle the gold, silver, and jewels out of Paris in three wagons covered over with hay. According to John of Chalons, the Templars fled to La Rochelle, a port city on the Atlantic coast, where they loaded the treasure aboard the Templar ships.The destination of the Templar fleet and treasure has been debated ever since; a likely destination would have been Scotland, but there is no concrete historical evidence.
But no less than three quatrains can easily be interpreted as talking about a Temple Treasure in the abbey of Orval.
