Plato's legend of Atlantis has become notorious among scholars as the absurdest lie in literature. Atlantis Destroyed explores the possibility that the account given by Plato is historically true. Rodney Castleden first considers the location of Atlantis re-examining two suggestions put forward in the early twentieth century; Minoan Crete and Minoan Thera. He outlines the latest research. Plato's legend of Atlantis has become notorious among scholars as the absurdest lie in literature. Atlantis Destroyed explores the possibility that the account given by Plato is historically true. Rodney Castleden first considers the location of Atlantis re-examining two suggestions put forward in the early twentieth century; Minoan Crete and Minoan Thera. He outlines the latest research findings on Knossos and Bronze Age Thera, discussing the material culture, trade empire and agricultural system, writing and wall paintings, art, religion and society of the Minoan civilization. Castleden demonstrates the many parallels between Plato's narrative and the Minoan Civilization in the Aegean. Fired by the imagination a new vision of Atlantis has arisen over the last one hundred and fifty years as a lost utopia. Rodney Castleden discusses why this picture arose and xplains how it has become confused with Plato's genuine account.

Atlantis Destroyed - new book

ISBN: 9780415247597

Plato´s legend of Atlantis has become notorious among scholars as the most absurd lie in literature, now, ´´Atlantis Destroyed´´ explores how Plato´s account can be perceived as historically true. Atlantis has hovered between fable and folk tale, taken as history by some and acknowledged as allegory by others. Now in paperback, this fascinating book theorizes how the tale of Atlantis is not one piece of identifiable proto-history, but several, and that Plato´s story was really a parable told to comment on the state of the world in his own times. The author incorporates the latest findings on Knossos (in Crete) and Thera, the two islands long considered the ´´real´´ site of Atlantis. In examining Minoan civilization, Castleden discusses the material culture, trade empire and agricultural system, writing and wall paintings, art, religion and society, providing a comprehensive picture of the islands during the Bronze Age. His research demonstrates for the reader parallels between Plato´s narrative and Aegean civilization which might indicate the geographical place of Atlantis. Just as Plato´s story of a land swallowed up by the sea sought to entertain, improve and exalt, ´´Atlantis Destroyed´´ will captivate readers with the telling of how a myth was made.
