Abstract[1]

Over the course of the seventeenth century, the ancient world was the subject of documentary and philological interest for artists and intellectuals which led to the rise of anti-quarian science and the classification of types. Two volumes by the German Jesuit Athanasius Kircher –Latium id est and the lost volume Iter etruscum written between the mid-fiies and the seventies reflected on the new ideas that were developing in those years. ese take us on a genuine scholarly journey through Lazio and ancient Etruria, where detailed descriptions of the places, their surviving monuments and their unspoiled natural surroundings build up into an archaeological landscape, the fruit of both imaginary reconstructions as well as personal experience and direct observations. An echo of these seventeenth-century naturalistic ideas can be gleaned from the work of renowned landscape painters such as Salvator Rosa, Nicolas Poussin, Claude Lorrain and Gaspard Dughet who were at one time acolytes in the scholarly circle which the Jesuit belonged to.
