Mundus Subterraneus is the most geological of Kircher's works. This book is notable for containing early plates of the Earth's interior, and views of spectacular eruptions of Mt. Vesuvius and Mt. Etna. Plato's Atlantis is represented as an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Kircher also examines water and fire cycles--providing detailed explanations of hydrophylacia (modern aquifers) and pyrophylacia (modern magma chambers). Furthermore, this is one of the first books dealing with speleology. Kircher's book is far-ranging in his attempt to avoid the split between science, philosophy and religion

La Tarantella nel Salento : played on organs and traditional instruments by Athanasius Kircher( )

5 editions published in 2013 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tarantella is an ecstatic folk dance from southern Italy with a long tradition extending to the present day. It actually came into being as a form of therapy following a tarantula bite: the musicians came to the patient's house, to the marketplace or church, and began playing. The victim of the bite danced to the point of total exhaustion in order to drive the spider's poison out of the body. The present CD is the result of the organist Liuwe Tamminga's longstanding preoccupation with this repertoire, notated between the 17th and 20th centuries, which has always exerted a great fascination on musicians. The special attraction of this recording lies in the fact that it combines outstanding historical organs from Apulia with a number of ;therapeutic' instruments: tambourine, castanets and triangle underline the rhythm whilst providing strong accents, and various plucked instruments such as the guitar and mandolin enter into a dialogue with the organ"--Distributor website
