Münster, Sebastian

Sebastian Münster (1488-1552) was a German Franciscan priest and important cartographer who was the first, in 1540, to show the two Americas joined to each other but unconnected to any other landmass(d). Under the word ‘Orbis’ in South America is written “Insula Atlantica” which simply means ‘Island of Atlantic’, but is claimed by some(a) to mean ‘Atlantis Island’!  Among supporters of this interpretation is Jim Allen(b), the leading proponent of ‘Atlantis in Bolivia’ theory and his followers, such as Dieter Groben(c).
