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". 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 incorrect. He did, however, correctly establish the link between the ancient Egyptian and the Coptic languages, and some commentators regard him as the founder of Egyptology.

IV, , Wolffheim I, Eitner V, Reilly, Athanasius Kicher S. Kircher was assisted by another helper also, far better qualified than Viva. As usual, Kircher intended to give his readers a full value for their investment, and so he began his treatise with a fundamental discussion of the anatomy and nature of sound and of the voice.
A very fine section on the anatomy of the ear and the vocal organs follows, in which he well-illustrated comparsion is drawn between the structure of the human and animal ears and mouths. He compares the voice to pneumatic musical instruments , and so is led into what he admits is a digression. The second book is given to a study of the history of music, from the ancient Hebrews to the present day.
He treats of the music of the Jews in great detail, illustrating many of their instruments and discussing among other topics the psalms of David. The greater portion of this first volume deals with the theory of music, harmony, musical instruments, composition.
It contains page after page of musical scores, illustrating the points of theory. Obviously here he was assisted by Abbatini.
Musurgia Universalis (Kircher, Athanasius)
Kircher was a German Jesuit scholar and a true Renaissance man. He published over 40 works during his life in widely varying fields such as medicine, optics, geology, natural philosophy and music. Musurgia Universalis is a combination of a scholarly study of the history of music and musical instruments and an attempt at a scientific explanation of musical harmony and sound theory. Kircher also theorized that the harmony of music reflected the divine proportions of the Universe as embodied in the plate Harmonia Nascentis Mundi above. By the middle of the 17 th century the Jesuit missions had spread as far abroad as China, the Americas and Japan, and Kircher regularly communicated with these missions to add to his knowledge of the subject he was writing on. In Musurgia Universalis , Kircher applies his scientific method to almost every aspect of music and noise. The two plates above illustrate his anatomical descriptions of the music receiving and music producing organs found in humans and other animals.
