Illuminating Kircher


Craig Kaplan wrote to tell me about some newly available high-res scans of seven complete works of (my hero/obsession) Athanasius Kircher, made available by the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbuttel.

UPDATE: I’ve corrected the above since my first post. The Bibliothek site is posting seven complete works, not just the illustrations excerpted on the bibliodyssey blog. You’ll find links to the complete works on the bottom of the post. The same blog earlier pointed to a complete scan of “Musurgia Universalis” at the University of Strasbourg.

    None of the above. You left out the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians and the Illuminati!
