Questions concerning Aristotle's On animals by Albertus( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,523 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 the Causes of the Properties of the Elements : Albert the Great by Albertus( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the causes of the properties of the elements. Albertus. Trans. by Irven M. Resnick. (Mediaeval philosophical texts in translation; no. 46)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. (Annotation ©2010 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)
On the body of the Lord by Albertus( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert the Great wrote On the Body of the Lord in the 1270s, making it his final work of sacramental theology. A companion volume to his commentary on the Mass, On the Body of the Lord is a comprehensive discussion of Eucharistic theology. The treatise is structured around six names for the Eucharist taken from the Mass: grace, gift, food, communion, sacrifice, and sacrament. It emerges from the liturgy and is intended to draw the reader back to worship. The overall movement of the treatise follows the order of God's wisdom. Albert begins by discussing the Eucharist as a gift flowing from the goodness of the Trinity. He touches on its relation to redemption and the Church, including a rigorous Aristotelian analysis of Eucharistic change and presence before ending with a discussion of Mass rubrics. The most significant theological emphasis is on the Eucharist as food given to feed the people of God."--
The Speculum astronomiae and its enigma : astrology, theology, and science in Albertus Magnus and his contemporaries by Paola Zambelli( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 304 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."--Jacket
