The Jesuit scholar Fr. Athanasius Kircher was 0ne of the most remarkable men of his time. He published forty major works in Latin on topics ranging from the natural sciences to Oriental studies. Many of his writings can be read with profit even after the passage of over three hundred years.

In 1667 Fr. Kircher published his China Illustrata. This book attempted to provide Europeans with a picture of the Chinese Empire and of the neighboring countries. Kircher drew on the written Jesuit sources, on oral accounts by returning missionaries, and on a variety of western sources such as Marco Polo. For over two hundred years, Kircher’s China Illustrata was probably the single most important written source for shaping the Western understanding of China and its neighbors.
