Description

This chapter outlines Michell’s notion of Glastonbury as a spiritual hub, beginning with Plato’s Atlantis (a major influence on Michell) and including specific theories of Atlantis and Britain. Likewise, the idea of a British “New Jerusalem,” as enunciated by William Blake, was tremendously important to Michell’s cosmology.
