Even as Athanasius Kircher self-celebrates citin Plato ("There is nothing more beautiful than knowing everything"), Kircher is reinterpreting and reascribing. Beyond the irony of not quite knowing the "knowing everything", a closer reading points allusively to the always interpreted, always re-worked nature of history.
