Humanities West Book Discussion: Egyptian Oedipus: Athanasius Kircher

Wed, May 8 2013 - 5:30pm

Long before the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, the 17th-century Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher embarked on his famously quixotic effort to unlock the secrets of antiquity by cracking the code of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Join us to discuss Egyptian Oedipus: Athanasius Kircher, by Daniel Stolzenberg. The discussion will be led by Lynn Harris.
