It was meant to be a place where a man could be free of religious domination and war, and while Bacon and his colleagues may have sold others on the idea of riches, they really wanted a safe haven from church and state. Bacon was already creating such a world with the influence he and john D had on Queen Elizabeth. Indeed, Bacon and his circle of fellow esoteric thinkers would fund England's explorations of the new world. New Atlantis was a seminal work of Bacon's.
