"The Ecstatic Journey: Althanasius Kircher in Baroque Rome" surveys the scientific, religious and political culture of 17th-century Rome through the works of Althanasius Kircher (1602-80), a German Jesuit at the Roman College. Published in conjunction with an exhibition held in the Department of Special Collections at the University of Chicago's Regenstein Library, this illustrated catalogue includes an essay by Ingrid D. Rowland and descriptions of over 100 works. The introduction by F. Sherwood Rowland, 1995 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, offers an appreciation of Kircher and observations on the idea of scientific progress.
