'The language of Art is not only to be taken literally, but also metaphorically, as a description of psychic or spiritual things.'

Athanasius Kircher

Athanasius Kircher (1601 or 1602–1680) was a 17th century German Jesuit scholar who published 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, and has been honoured with the title "master of a hundred arts".
Kircher published a large number of substantial books on a very wide variety of subjects, such as Egyptology, geology, and music theory.
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
