Lipsius, Justus

In Book One, chapter 16 of the De Constantia (Book of Constancy) he unequivocally states his belief in the reality of Atlantis(a).*The original as well as an English translation are available online [1493].*

The Justus Lipsius Building in Brussels has been the headquarters of the Council of the European Union since 1995.
