Description

This chapter approaches the numerological implications of Michell’s theory of how the Heavenly City may be established by means of numerical keys. Thus, this chapter is the attempt of analysing Michell’s theory and his entire worldview through their common denominators, namely sacred numerology and geometry. By discussing the importance of numerical elements in a separate chapter, I intend to emphasize Michell’s esoteric and traditionalistic approach towards Glastonbury.
