By Ignatius Donnelly

Атлантида, мир до потопа — книга американского политика Игнатиуса Лойолы Доннелли, опубликованная в 1882 году. Доннелли считал сообщения Платона об Атлантиде описанием действительно существовавшей цивилизации, и пытался доказать, что все прочие древние цивилизации Земли произошли от атлантической. Книга стала чрезвычайно популярной (только к 1890 г. было предпринято 23 издания[1], а к 1949 г. — 50) и легла в основу суждений об Атлантиде в трудах Джеймса Чёрчварда, использовалась в рассуждениях об Атлантиде Е. П. Блаватской и Р. Штейнера[2]. На рассуждения Доннелли об общности древних культур Старого и Нового света оказали влияние эксцентрические теории Ш. Э. Брассёр де Бурбура и О. Ле-Плонжона.

Example text

But who will say, in the presence of all the facts here enumerated, that the submergence of Atlantis, in some great world-shaking cataclysm, is either impossible or improbable? As will be shown hereafter, when we come to discuss the Flood legends, every particular which has come down to us of the destruction of Atlantis has been duplicated in some of the accounts just given. We conclude, therefore: 1. That it is proven beyond question, by geological evidence, that vast masses of land once existed in the region where Atlantis is located by Plato, and that therefore such an island must have existed; 2.

ERUPTION OF VESUVIUS IN 1737. Ireland also lies near the axis of this great volcanic area, reaching from the Canaries to Iceland, and it has been many times in the past the seat of disturbance. The ancient annals contain numerous accounts of eruptions, preceded by volcanic action. In 1490, at the Ox Mountains, Sligo, one occurred by which one hundred persons and numbers of cattle were destroyed; and a volcanic eruption in May, 1788, on the hill of Knocklade, Antrim, poured a stream of lava sixty yards wide for thirty-nine hours, and destroyed the village of Ballyowen and all the inhabitants, save a man and his wife and two children.
