Description

The Atlantica is the culmination of Swedish Gothicism, which was revitalised in order to glorify the new nation state. Rudbeck expands this tradition and sets out to prove that Sweden was the legendary island of Atlantis mentioned by Plato. He claimes that all classical culture had its origin in the North in the proto-Swedish kingdom, and attempts to substitute Swedish etymology for Greek. Despite his extremism, the Atlantica is valued for its extensive discussion of myth and detailed description of artefacts.
