A transcription of the sentence in Latin from this book, that mentions the records the prefix 'pro' as relevant to the word prognifics, as in the word 'proprietas' or 'the properties'. The sentence is,
Secundo quaeritur: Utrum proprietas sint in effentia et videtur non: Deus est divina effentia quia illud in quo est realis relatio, realiter referetur: sed divina effentia realiter non refertur ergo in ipsa non est proprietas relativa.
It is difficult to for me to translate this sentence accurately without my university Latin textbooks, but this may come close:
The Second Part (of the book): Where properities are in essences and not visible. God is a divine essence, therefore His properties are divine essences.
Unfortunately, that's all for now. My latin is introductory, and I lack a grammar and dictionary, with the exception of what is available online.
The main point relating to the word 'prognific' is the sense that the citation makes of the prefix 'pro' found in 'proprietas' or properties, and the medieval theologian ditinguishes properties which participate in a divine essence, because God is a divine essense and contains properties which are divine in essence, whereas alternatively, everyday objects which do not participate with the divine are not related to the divine essense.
I should mention that online there was recorded a Hindi defintion of 'prognostification', however it doesn't seem to be there anymore. I did not record it, because I can't read Hindi. In retrospect, it may have been useful to some subscribers.
