around 40 works, most notably in the fields of oriental studies, geology, and medicine. Kircher has been compared to fellow Jesuit Roger
Boscovich and to Leonardo da Vinci for his enormous range of interests, including discovering works and has been honoured with the title
"master of a hundred arts". A resurgence of interest in Kircher has occurred within the scholarly community in recent decades.Kircher claimed to have deciphered the hieroglyphic writing of the ancient Egyptian language, but most of his assumptions and translations
in this field were later found to be nonsensical. He did, however, correctly establish the link between the ancient Egyptian and the modern
Coptic languages, and some commentators regard him as the founder of Egyptology. Kircher was also fascinated with Sinology and wrote an
encyclopedia of China, in which he noted the early presence of Nestorian Christians while also attempting to establish links with
Egypt and Christianity that modern scholars regard as largely imaginary.Kircher's work with geology included studies of volcanos and fossils. One of the first people to observe microbes through a microscope, he was
thus ahead of his time in proposing that the plague was caused by an infectious microorganism and in suggesting effective measures to prevent
the spread of the disease. Kircher also displayed a keen interest in technology and mechanical inventions, and inventions attributed to him
include a magnetic clock, various automatons and the first megaphone. The invention of the magic lantern is often misattributed to Kircher,
although he did conduct a study of the principles involved in his Ars Magna Lucis et Umbrae.A scientific star in his day, towards the end of his life he was eclipsed by the rationalism of René Descartes and others. In the late 20th
century, however, the aesthetic qualities of his work again began to be appreciated. One modern scholar, Alan Cutler, described Kircher as
"a giant among seventeenth-century scholars", and "one of the last thinkers who could rightfully claim all knowledge as his domain". Another
scholar, Edward W. Schmidt, referred to Kircher as "the last Renaissance man".LifeKircher was born on 2 May in either 1601 or 1602 (he himself did not know) in Geisa, Buchonia, near Fulda, currently Hesse, Germany. From his
birthplace he took the epithets Bucho, Buchonius and Fuldensis which he sometimes added to his name. He attended the Jesuit College in Fulda
from 1614 to 1618, when he entered the novitiate of the Society.The youngest of nine children, Kircher studied volcanoes for his passion of rocks and eruptions. He was taught Hebrew by a rabbi[citation needed]
in addition to his studies at school. He studied philosophy and theology at Paderborn, but fled to Cologne in 1622 to escape advancing Protestant
forces.[citation needed] On the journey, he narrowly escaped death after falling through the ice crossing the frozen Rhine— one of several
occasions on which his life was endangered. Later, travelling to Heiligenstadt, he was caught and nearly hanged by a party of Protestant soldiers.
[citation needed]From 1622 to 1624 Kircher was sent to began his regency period in Koblenz as a teacher. This was followed by the assignment to Heiligenstadt,
where he taught mathematics, Hebrew and Syriac, and produced a show of fireworks and moving scenery for the visiting Elector Archbishop of Mainz,
showing early evidence of his interest in mechanical devices. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1628 and became professor of ethics and
mathematics at the University of Würzburg, where he also taught Hebrew and Syriac. From 1628, he also began to show an interest in Egyptian
hieroglyphs.Kircher published his first book (the Ars Magnesia, reporting his research on magnetism) in 1631, but the same year he was driven by the
continuing Thirty Years' War to the papal University of Avignon in France. In 1633, he was called to Vienna by the emperor to succeed Kepler as
Mathematician to the Habsburg court. On the intervention of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc, the order was rescinded and he was sent instead to
Rome to continue with his scholarly work, but he had already set off for Vienna.On the way, his ship was blown off-course and he arrived in Rome before he knew of the changed decision. He based himself in the city for the
rest of his life, and from 1638, he taught mathematics, physics and oriental languages at the Collegio Romano for several years before being
released to devote himself to research. He studied malaria and the plague, amassing a collection of antiquities, which he exhibited along with
devices of his own creation in the Museum Kircherianum.In 1661, Kircher discovered the ruins of a church said to have been constructed by Constantine on the site of Saint Eustace's vision of Jesus
Christ in a stag's horns. He raised money to pay for the church’s reconstruction as the Santuario della Mentorella, and his heart was buried in
the church on his death.
WorkKircher published a large number of substantial books on a very wide variety of subjects, such as Egyptology, geology, and music theory. His
syncretic approach paid no attention to the boundaries between disciplines which are now conventional: his Magnes, for example, was ostensibly a
discussion of magnetism, but also explored other forms of attraction such as gravity and love. Perhaps Kircher's best-known work today is his
Oedipus Aegyptiacus (1652–54) a vast study of Egyptology and comparative religion.His books, written in Latin, had a wide circulation in the 17th century, and they contributed to the dissemination of scientific information to a
broader circle of readers. Kircher is not now considered to have made any significant original contributions, although a number of discoveries
and inventions (e.g., the magic lantern) have sometimes been mistakenly attributed to him.
Linguistic and cultural studies
Egyptology
Main article: Oedipus Aegyptiacus
Further information: Egyptology, Egyptian hieroglyphics and Egyptian language
The Coptic alphabet, from Prodromus coptus sive aegyptiacus.The last known example of Egyptian hieroglyphics dates from AD 394, after which all knowledge of hieroglyphics was lost. Until Thomas Young and
Jean-François Champollion found the key to hieroglyphics in the 19th century, the main authority was the 4th century Greek grammarian Horapollon,
whose chief contribution was the misconception that hieroglyphics were "picture writing" and that future translators should look for symbolic
meaning in the pictures.The first modern study of hieroglyphics came with Piero Valeriano Bolzani's Hieroglyphica (1566),[5] and Kircher was the most famous of the
"decipherers" between ancient and modern times and the most famous Egyptologist of his day.[7] In his Lingua Aegyptiaca Restituta (1643), Kircher
called hieroglyphics "this language hitherto unknown in Europe, in which there are as many pictures as letters, as many riddles as sounds, in
short as many mazes to be escaped from as mountains to be climbed". While some of his notions are long discredited, portions of his work have
been valuable to later scholars, and Kircher helped pioneer Egyptology as a field of serious study.Kircher's interest in Egyptology began in 1628 when he became intrigued by a collection of hieroglyphs in the library at Speyer. He learned
Coptic in 1633 and published the first grammar of that language in 1636, the Prodromus coptus sive aegyptiacus. Kircher then broke with
Horapollon's interpretation of the language of the hieroglyphs with his Lingua aegyptiaca restituta. Kircher argued that Coptic preserved the last
development of ancient Egyptian.[7][8] For this Kircher has been considered the true "founder of Egyptology", because his work was conducted
"before the discovery of the Rosetta Stone rendered Egyptian hieroglyphics comprehensible to scholars". He also recognised the relationship
between the hieratic and hieroglyphic scripts.
Frontispiece to Kircher's Oedipus Ægyptiacus; the Sphinx, confronted by Kircher's learning, admits he has solved her riddle.Between 1650 and 1654, Kircher published four volumes of "translations" of hieroglyphs in the context of his Coptic studies. However, according
to Steven Frimmer, "none of them even remotely fitted the original texts".[7] In Oedipus Aegyptiacus, Kircher argued under the impression of the
Hieroglyphica that ancient Egyptian was the language spoken by Adam and Eve, that Hermes Trismegistus was Moses, and that hieroglyphs were occult
symbols which "cannot be translated by words, but expressed only by marks, characters and figures." This led him to translate simple hieroglyphic
texts now known to read as dd Wsr ("Osiris says") as "The treachery of Typhon ends at the throne of Isis; the moisture of nature is guarded by the
vigilance of Anubis"According to the Egyptologist Sir E. A. Wallis Budge: Many writers pretended to have found the key to the hieroglyphics, and many more professed, with a shameless impudence which is hard to
understand in these days, to translate the contents of the texts into a modern tongue. Foremost among such pretenders must be mentioned Athanasius
Kircher, who, in the 17th century, declared that he had found the key to the hieroglyphic inscriptions; the translations which he prints in his
Oedipus Aegyptiacus are utter nonsense, but as they were put forth in a learned tongue many people at the time believed they were correct.Although Kircher's approach to deciphering the texts was based on a fundamental misconception, some modern commentators have described Kircher as
the pioneer of the serious study of hieroglyphs. The data which he collected were later consulted by Champollion in his successful efforts to
decode the script. Kircher himself recognized the possibility of the hieroglyphs constituting an alphabet; he included in his proposed system
(incorrect) derivations of the Greek alphabet from 21 hieroglyphs.[citation needed] According to Joseph MacDonnell, it was "because of Kircher's
work that scientists knew what to look for when interpreting the Rosetta stone". Another scholar of ancient Egypt, Erik Iversen, concluded: It is therefore Kircher's incontestable merit that he was the first to have discovered the phonetic value of an Egyptian hieroglyph. From a
humanistic as well as an intellectual point of view Egyptology may very well be proud of having Kircher as its founder.Kircher was also actively involved in the erection of obelisks in Roman squares, often adding fantastic "hieroglyphs" of his own design in the
blank areas that are now puzzling to modern scholars.[citation needed]
Sinology
Map of China, China Illustrata.
See also: Jesuit China missionsKircher had an early interest in China, telling his superior in 1629 that he wished to become a missionary to the country. In 1667 he published a
treatise whose full title was China monumentis, qua sacris qua profanis, nec non variis naturae and artis spectaculis, aliarumque rerum
memorabilium argumentis illustrata, and which is commonly known simply as China Illustrata, i.e. "China Illustrated". It was a work of
encyclopedic breadth, combining material of unequal quality, from accurate cartography to mythical elements, such as dragons. The work drew
heavily on the reports of Jesuits working in China, in particular Michael Boym and Martino Martini.China Illustrata emphasized the Christian elements of Chinese history, both real and imagined: the book noted the early presence of Nestorian
Christians (with a Latin translation of the Nestorian Stele of Xi'an provided by Boym and his Chinese collaborator, Andrew Zheng),[14] but also
claimed that the Chinese were descended from the sons of Ham, that Confucius was Hermes Trismegistus/Moses and that the Chinese characters were
abstracted hieroglyphs.In Kircher's system, ideograms were inferior to hieroglyphs because they referred to specific ideas rather than to mysterious complexes of ideas,
while the signs of the Maya and Aztecs were yet lower pictograms which referred only to objects. Umberto Eco comments that this idea reflected and
supported the European attitude to the Chinese and native American civilizations;"China was presented not as an unknown barbarian to be defeated but as a prodigal son who should return to the home of the common father". (p. 69)
Biblical studies and exegesisIn 1675, he published Arca Noë, the results of his research on the biblical Ark of Noah— following the Counter-Reformation, allegorical
interpretation was giving way to the study of the Old Testament as literal truth among Scriptural scholars. Kircher analyzed the dimensions of the
Ark; based on the number of species known to him (excluding insects and other forms thought to arise spontaneously), he calculated that overcrowding
would not have been a problem. He also discussed the logistics of the Ark voyage, speculating on whether extra livestock was brought to feed
carnivores and what the daily schedule of feeding and caring for animals must have been.
Other cultural workKircher was sent the Voynich Manuscript in 1666 by Johannes Marcus Marci in the hope of Kircher being able to decipher it. The manuscript
remained in the Collegio Romano until Victor Emmanuel II of Italy annexed the Papal States in 1870, though scepticism as to the authenticity of the
story and of the origin of the manuscript itself exists. In his Polygraphia nova (1663), Kircher proposed an artificial universal language.
Physical sciences
Geology
Kircher's model of the Earth's internal fires, from Mundus Subterraneus.On a visit to southern Italy in 1638, the ever-curious Kircher was lowered into the crater of Vesuvius, then on the brink of eruption, in order to
examine its interior. He was also intrigued by the subterranean rumbling which he heard at the Strait of Messina. His geological and geographical
investigations culminated in his Mundus Subterraneus of 1664, in which he suggested that the tides were caused by water moving to and from a
subterranean ocean.Kircher was also puzzled by fossils. He understood that some were the remains of animals which had turned to stone, but ascribed others to human
invention or to the spontaneous generative force of the earth. He ascribed large bones to giant races of humans.[16] Not all the objects which he
was attempting to explain were in fact fossils, hence the diversity of explanations. He interpreted mountain ranges as the Earth's skeletal
structures exposed by weathering.
Kircher's map of the Atlantis, oriented with south at the top, from Mundus Subterraneus.Mundus Subterraneus includes several pages about the legendary island of Atlantis including a map with the Latin caption "Situs Insulae Atlantidis,
a Mari olim absorpte ex mente Egyptiorum et Platonis descriptio." translating as "Site of the island of Atlantis, in the sea, from Egyptian sources
and Plato's description."
BiologyIn his book Arca Noë, Kircher argued that after the flood new species were transformed as they moved into different environments, for example, when
a deer moved into a colder climate, it became a reindeer. Additionally, he held that many species were formed by hybrids of other species, for
example, the armadillo from a combination of turtles and porcupines. He also advocated the theory of spontaneous generation.[19] Because of such
hypotheses, some historians have held that Kircher was a proto-evolutionist.
Medicine
The ears of a human, cow, horse, dog, leopard, cat, rat, pig, sheep and goose illustrated in Musurgia Universalis.Kircher took a notably modern approach to the study of diseases, as early as 1646 using a microscope to investigate the blood of plague victims.
In his Scrutinium Pestis of 1658, he noted the presence of "little worms" or "animalcules" in the blood, and concluded that the disease was caused
by microorganisms. The conclusion was correct, although it is likely that what he saw were in fact red or white blood cells and not the plague agent,
Yersinia pestis. He also proposed hygienic measures to prevent the spread of disease, such as isolation, quarantine, burning clothes worn by the
infected and wearing facemasks to prevent the inhalation of germs.
Technology
Kircher's magnetic clock.In 1646, Kircher published Ars Magna Lucis et Umbrae, on the subject of the display of images on a screen using an apparatus similar to the magic
lantern as developed by Christiaan Huygens and others. Kircher described the construction of a "catotrophic lamp" that used reflection to project
images on the wall of a darkened room. Although Kircher did not invent the device, he made improvements over previous models, and suggested methods
by which exhibitors could use his device. Much of the significance of his work arises from Kircher's rational approach towards the demystification
of projected images.Previously such images had been used in Europe to mimic supernatural appearances (Kircher himself cites the use of displayed images by the rabbis in
the court of King Solomon). Kircher stressed that exhibitors should take great care to inform spectators that such images were purely naturalistic,
and not magical in origin.Kircher also constructed a magnetic clock, the mechanism of which he explained in his Magnes (1641). The device had originally been invented by
another Jesuit, Fr. Linus of Liege, and was described by an acquaintance of Line's in 1634. Kircher's patron Peiresc had claimed that the clock's
motion supported the Copernican cosmological model, the argument being that the magnetic sphere in the clock was caused to rotate by the magnetic
force of the sun.Kircher's model disproved the hypothesis, showing that the motion could be produced by a water clock in the base of the device. Although Kircher
wrote against the Copernican model in his Magnes, supporting instead that of Tycho Brahe, his later Itinerarium extaticum (1656, revised 1671),
presented several systems — including the Copernican — as distinct possibilities. The clock has been reconstructed by Caroline Bouguereau in
collaboration with Michael John Gorman and is on display at the Green Library at Stanford University.The Musurgia Universalis (1650) sets out Kircher's views on music: he believed that the harmony of music reflected the proportions of the universe.
The book includes plans for constructing water-powered automatic organs, notations of birdsong and diagrams of musical instruments. One illustration
shows the differences between the ears of humans and other animals. In Phonurgia Nova (1673) Kircher considered the possibilities of transmitting
music to remote places.Other machines designed by Kircher include an aeolian harp, automatons such as a statue which spoke and listened via a speaking tube, a perpetual
motion machine, and a Katzenklavier ("cat piano"). This last of these would have driven spikes into the tails of cats, which would yowl to specified
pitches, although Kircher is not known to have actually constructed the Kircher's work was not mathematically based, he did develop various systems for generating and counting all combinations of a finite
collection of objects (i.e. a finite set). His methods and diagrams are discussed in Ars Magna Sciendi, sive Combinatoria (sic).
Legacy
Turris Babel: with typical eclecticism, Kircher illustrates the impossibility of the Tower of Babel having reached the moon, 1679
Scholarly influenceFor most of his professional life, Kircher was one of the scientific stars of the world: according to historian Paula Findlen, he was "the first
scholar with a global reputation". His importance was twofold: to the results of his own experiments and research he added information gleaned from
his correspondence with over 760 scientists, physicians and above all his fellow Jesuits in all parts of the globe. The Encyclopædia Britannica
calls him a "one-man intellectual clearing house". His works, illustrated to his orders, were extremely popular, and he was the first scientist to
be able to support himself through the sale of his books. Towards the end of his life his stock fell, as the rationalist Cartesian approach began to
dominate (Descartes himself described Kircher as "more quacksalver than savant").
Cultural legacyKircher was largely neglected until the late 20th century. One writer attributes his rediscovery to the similarities between his eclectic approach
and [Four hundred] years after his birth there is a revival of interest in Kircher, perhaps because Kircher can be considered as the premodern root
of postmodern thinking. With his labyrinthine mind, he was Jorge Luis Borges… before Borges. …at the start of the 21st century Kircher's taste for
trivia, deception and wonder is back.He added that "Kircher's postmodern qualities include his subversiveness, his celebrity, his technomania and his bizarre eclecticism". In Robert
Graham Irwin's For Lust of Knowing, Kircher is called "one of the last scholars aspiring to know everything", with Kircher's contemporary countryman
Gottfried Leibniz cited as the probable "last" such scholar.[citation needed]As few of Kircher's works have been translated, the contemporary emphasis has been on their aesthetic qualities rather than their actual content,
and a succession of exhibitions have highlighted the beauty of their illustrations. Historian Anthony Grafton has said that "the staggeringly strange
dark continent of Kircher's work [is] the setting for a Borges story that was never written", while Umberto Eco has written about Kircher in his
novel The Island of the Day Before, as well as in his non-fiction works The Search for the Perfect Language and Serendipities. The contemporary
artist Cybèle Varela has paid tribute to Kircher in her exhibition Ad Sidera per Athanasius Kircher, held in the Collegio Romano, in the same place
where the Museum Kircherianum was.The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles has a hall dedicated to the life of Kircher. The Athanasius Kircher Society had a weblog devoted to
unusual ephemera, which very occasionally relate to Kircher. His ethnographic collection is in the Pigorini National Museum of Prehistory and
Ethnography in Rome.John Glassie’s 2012 book about Kircher, A Man of Misconceptions, traces connections between Kircher and figures such as Gianlorenzo Bernini, René
Descartes, and Isaac Newton. It also suggests influences on Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Anton Mesmer, Jules Verne, and Marcel Duchamp.In the end, Glassie writes, Kircher should be acknowledged “for his effort to know everything and to share everything he knew, for asking a thousand
questions about the world around him, and for getting so many others to ask questions about his answers; for stimulating, as well as confounding and
inadvertently amusing, so many minds; for having been a source of so many ideas—right, wrong, half-right, half-baked, ridiculous, beautiful, and all principal works, in chronological order, are:
