The Sacred Theory of the Earth

The Sacred Theory of the Earth

by Thomas Burnet (Author)

The first part of "The Sacred Theory of the Earth", written by the English theologian and writer on cosmogony Thomas Burnet, was published in 1681 in Latin, and in 1684 in English translation; the second part appeared in 1689 (1690 in English). 

"The Sacred Theory of the Earth" is a speculative cosmogony, in which Burnet suggests a hollow earth with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He calculated the amount of water on Earth's surface, stating there was not enough to account for the Flood.
