Illustration from Athanasius Kircher "Drawing of Egiptian Gods"One of our main goals is to provide a forum for specialists to meet and interact about the work of Kircher and his correspondents. We’ll keep you up-to-date on our Kircher-related collections and activities and we invite you to post insights, questions, and interesting finds.

Also, please help us compose a database of other Kircher correspondence found in archives and libraries outside of the Pontifical Gregorian University.

Important August 2013 Update: The Kircher Correspondence is once again available as before, via the Luna Insight browser. See the Correspondence page for more details.
