Charles Piazzi Smyth (1819–1900)

Smyth, Charles Piazzi. A Scotch astronomer; born at Naples, Jan. 3, 1819; died at Ripon, Feb. 21, 1900. His studies of the great Egyptian pyramid led him to the conclusion that it was raised under direct inspiration of God, and that therein were deposited revelations of the great truths of physical nature. He wrote ‘Our Inheritance in the Great Pyramid’ (3d ed. 1880).
