Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 39 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1602.
First published in 1602, this is a philosophical work by the Italian Dominican philosopher Tommaso Campanella. The book is presented as a dialogue between 'a Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller and a Genoese Sea-Captain'. Inspired by Plato's Republic and the description of Atlantis in Timaeus, it describes a theocratic society where goods, women and children are held in common. It also resembles the City of Adocentyn in the Picatrix, an Arabic grimoire of astrological magic.
