Bacon, Francis (1561–1626)
In his unfinished utopian narrative The New Atlantic (originally published in Latin, 1627), Bacon depicted a society on a remote Pacific island that is ruled by an elite of benevolent scientists. Their methods of research foreshadow those of latter-day science, and their Salomon's House inspired by the creation of the Royal Society.
Bacon was also known as Lord Verulam and Viscount St. Albans.
