I had been well aware that Marsilio Ficino had envisioned the Renaissance as the rebirth of the ancient Egyptian religion (as prophesied in the Corpus Hermeticum) as well as the ancient Golden Age, but according to Michael Allen (a UCLA professor not a crazy conspiracy theorist), Ficino envisioned his time as a revival of “the pre-Noachian time of Enoch,” that is, possibly what Plato would call the antediluvian Atlantis civilization. Very interesting indeed.
