Annotation

Traces history through the past and the then present to a religious, medieval, Christian eutopia in about 3150 (US 254-305). Women priests who serve women; the male priests serve men. No divorce. Everyone works. Some machinery including a “flying boat,” electricity that powers lights and radio. There has been no history in Europe since the passing of the machine age. If a country is happy, it has none.” Throughout it is suggested that the main character is not wholly male but a mix of male and female.
