Elysium (or sometimes the Elysian Fields), in ancient times the supposed habitation of the blessed when they have departed this life. Its exact position in space was never definitely settled, being variously put at the outside of the earth, at the antipodes, at the centre of the earth, and in the

Fortunate Isles (now the Canaries); but it was an abode of physical and intellectual delight from which all care and toil were banished.
