The City of the Sun

A Poetical Dialogue Between A Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitallers and A Genoese Sea Captain, His Guest

Rate this:
The City of the Sun is an important early utopian work by Italian philosopher Tommaso Campanella, written after his imprisonment for sedition and heresy. Given as the dialog between a Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller and a Genoese Sea-Captain, The City of the Sun outlines Campanella's vision for a unified world, where property is held in common - Campanella including women and children in this one - and peacefully governed by a theocratic monarchy.
