The Atlantis Wiki


Welcome to The Atlantis Wiki.

Created by Oliver. D. Smith

The Atlantis Wiki is dedicated to classicists and scholars who have written about Plato's Atlantis.

To have a page/entry on The Atlantis Wiki requires at least of one the following that verifies research:

  • A peer-reviewed article about Atlantis in a journal.
  • A B.A. dissertation, M.A. or Ph.D. thesis on the subject of Atlantis.
  • A book on Atlantis published by a university press or academic publishing house.
  • A publication on Atlantis that has two or more book reviews in academic journals.
  • A work concerning Atlantis printed in a reputable science, philosophy or history magazine.

These weed out non-serious literature on Atlantis ranging from pseudo-archaeology to occultism. 

Note: there may be rare exceptions to the above based on notability criteria.
