Sinopsis: Athanasius Kircher (160280) was acknowledged to be the most learned man of his age. By profession a Jesuit priest, he made himself an authority on every subject under (and above) the sun and published the results of his researches in over thirty lavishly illustrated volumes in Latin. His museum in Rome was famous and visited by everybody in the world of learning. Inevitably, his work has been superseded in most areas of study, but he remains a key figure in the history of ideas and in recent years there has been a revival of interest, in which Joscelyn Godwin has played a leading role. But while every other aspect of his thought has been studied, the fascinating engravings with which he illustrated his ideas have been largely ignored. This book fills that gap. It is divided into 15 chapters grouped by the engravings subject; these illustrations reveal his singular mind and the way he was drawn to mysticism and magic.

Descripción Thames & Hudson, London, first edition, 2009, 2009. Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, 304 pp, 410 ills. From the blurb: "In the 17th Century Athanasius Kircher was a phenomenon. In the 21st he has become a cult. By profession a Jesuit priest, he made himself an authority on almost every subject under the sun. His most vaunted achievement was to translate the Egyptian hieroglyphs, and though he got them wrong his work marked the beginning of Egyptology. Kircher was the first to map ocean currents; the first to offer a comprehensive theory of vulcanism; the first to compile an encyclopaedia on China, a dictionary of Coptic, a hook dedicated solely to acoustics; the first to construct a machine for coding messages and another for composing music. Other interests icluded biblical archaeology and Christian and nonChristian history, the machinery of illusionism, the Kabbalah, the planets and the biology of animals and plants. His museum in Rome was among the most famous 'cabinets of curiosities', visited by everybody in the intellectual world.In recent years the study of this fascinating man and his works has become an industry. But while every other aspect of Kircher's thought has been exhaustively analysed, his prolific illustrations have been left largely unexplained. Kircher had an extraordinary imagination, comparable to the most avant-garde modern artist, even (or often especially) when he was wrong. The present book fills that gap. With over 400 illustrations, each with a detailed commentary, it proves how much more we still have to leam from this eccentric genius. Joscelyn Godwin's unrivalled mastery of his subject gives a sure underpinning to the presentation of hundreds of engravings through which Kircher prepared his ideas and through which we can see the mind of one of the most memorable thinkers who has ever lived."
