About this title

Synopsis:

The Dimensions of Paradise were known to ancient civilizations as the harmonious numerical standards that were the underpinning of the created world. John Michell's quest for these standards provides vital clues for understanding:

* the dimensions and symbolism of Stonehenge

* the plan of Atlantis and reason for its fall

* the numbers behind the sacred names of Christianity

* the form of St. John's vision of the New Jerusalem

* the name of the man with the number 666

* the foundation plan of Glastonbury and other sanctuaries These symbols suggest a potential for personal, cultural and political regeneration in our new century.

About the Author:

John Michell was born in 1933 and was educated at Eton and Cambridge. With The View Over Atlantis (1969) and City of Revelation (1972) he helped to change the attitudes of a whole generation toward the culture, wisdom and science of ancient and traditional societies. His other titles are Megalithomaia, A New View Over Atlantis, Eccentric Lives and Peculiar Notions and Living Wonders. He lives in London.
