Arca Noë (“Noah’s Ark”) was a book published in 1675 by the Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher. It was a study of the biblical story of Noah’s Ark, published by the cartographer and bookseller Johannes van Waesbergen in Amsterdam. Kircher's aim in Arca Noë was to reconcile recent discoveries in nature and geography with the text of the Bible. This demonstration of the underlying unity and truth between revelation and science was a fundamental task of Catholic scholarship at the time. Together with its sister volume Turris Babel (“The Tower of Babel”), Arca Noë presented a complete intellectual project to demonstrate how contemporary science supported the account of the Book of Genesis.
