Questions concerning Aristotle's On animals by Albertus ( )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This text, the Questions concerning Aristotle's On Animals [Quaestiones super de animalibus], recovered only at the beginning of the twentieth century and never before translated in its entirety, represents Conrad of Austria's report on a series of disputed questions that Albert the Great addressed in Cologne ca. 1258. The Questions, in nineteen books, mixes two distinct genres: the scholastic quaestio, with arguments pro et contra, a determination, and answers to the objections; and the straightforward question-and-response found, for example, in The Prose Salernitan Questions." "Here, even more dearly perhaps than in his slightly later and much larger paraphrastic commentary On Animals [De animalibus], Albert adduces his own views - often criticizing other medieval physicians and natural philosophers - on comparative anatomy, human physiology, sexuality, procreation, and embryology. This translation, based on the critical edition that appeared in the Cologne edition of Albert's work, helps to explain the title "patron saint of scientists" bestowed upon Albert by Pope Pius XII." "This work should find its audience among medievalists and historians of science and culture. More so than the massive On Animals, it should prove useful in the classroom as an encyclopedia or handbook of medieval life."--Jacket
On union with God by Albertus ( )
17 editions published between 1911 and 2000 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert the Great was born in Swabia, the son of a military nobleman. He was a Dominican priest who taught theology in Cologne and Paris. His most distinguished student was Saint Thomas Aquinas. Albert was called Doctor universalis because his breadth of knowledge spanned not only philosophy and theology but all the natural sciences. He was a dedicated student of nature, and although he argued that the physical world can only be known reliably through observation and comparison, Albert distinguished between thruths, which are naturally knowable, and mysteries, which cannot be known without revelation. People can only reach God through Himself - that is, by leaving behind the entanglements of earthly things and contemplating Him exclusively. The image and reality of God's incarnation in Jesus gives human beings the opportunity to attain a more perfect knowledge God through contemplation. Albert refers to the teaching of St. Peter, Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you

Resnick (Judaic studies, U. of Tennessee-Chattanooga) has translated several works by Saint Albertus Magnus (1193?-1280), and here presents Liber de causis proprietatum elementorum, a commentary on a work in Arabic that was mistakenly attributed to Aristotle during his time. He probably wrote it, says Resnick, in Cologne, where he had been sent by his Dominican order along with his student Thomas Aquinas

The Speculum astronomiae and its enigma : astrology, theology, and science in Albertus Magnus and his contemporaries by Paola Zambelli ( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The attribution of the Speculum Astronomiae to Albertus Magnus became a controversial issue only recently, when the great neo-Thomist historian Pierre Mandonnet suggested -- without any antecedents -- that the author was Roger Bacon rather than Albert. Mandonnet's theses were refuted by Lynn Thorndike and have since then been the subject of widespread discussion. The present historiographical case-study considers this debate in the light of an analysis of texts by Albert himself, as well as other important authors, such as Bacon, Bonaventura, Thomas Aquinas, Witelo, Campanus of Novara, and others, which shows how widespread the general concept of the influence of the stars and other astrological ideas to be found in the Speculum were. Most of the scientific ideas of the Middle Ages were based on principles derived from the notion of celestial influence and its consequences. The Speculum drew the fundamental outlines of this discipline into a theoretical and bibliographical introduction -- no small achievement -- and was consequently greeted with great interest and used as a standard reference book for many centuries. Set against the background of discussions taking place in the 1260s, within the Dominican Order as well as in the Faculties of Arts, Zambelli removes all doubt that the Speculum was written by Albert, possibly with some collaboration

Hauptbeschreibung Die Philosophie und Theologie des Mittelalters ist untrennbar mit Albertus Magnus (um 1200 bis 1280), dem Lehrer des Thomas von Aquin, verbunden. Albertus Magnus war ein herausragender Vertreter der Scholastik, der die christliche Glaubenslehre durch eine originelle Aufnahme der aristotelischen Philosophie belebte und die nachfolgende Geschichte der Theologie wesentlich mitprägte. Bahnbrechend war er auch als an Empirie und Experiment orientierter Naturforscher. Die Aufgeschlossenheit für die Meinung Andersdenkender zeichnet den ""Doctor universalis"" ebenfalls au
