Questions concerning Aristotle's On animals by Albertus( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,948 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 body of the Lord by Albert Wielki( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,076 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."--
On union with God by Albertus Magnus (Albert den Store)( )

26 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in English and held by 810 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

The book of secrets of Albertus Magnus of the virtues of herbs, stones and certain beasts, also A book of the marvels of the world by Albertus( Book )

28 editions published between 1973 and 2019 in English and French and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In order to attract readers, it was not uncommon for magical texts of the 16th century to take on the name of a notable historical figure. Such is the case with The Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, whose secrets are, in fact, a compilation from a number of sources by an anonymous author who was, according to editors Best and Brightman, probably one of Albertus Magnus' followers. Though it "...pretends to be a product of his experimental school among the Dominicans at Cologne," it has a more colloquial voice than that of Albertus Magnus. It more accurately portrays the popular magical literature available in the 16th century than the erudite works directly attributable to Albertus Magnus." "Albertus Magnus (d. 1279) is known as one of the foremost alchemists of the 13th century. After a career in the church that culminated with his appointment as Bishop of Ratisbon, Albertus retired to Cologne to devote his life to his research. According to one account, he is purported to have created the Philosopher's Stone, delivering it, shortly before his death, to his student, St. Thomas Aquinas. Book jacket."--BOOK 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 477 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 resurrection by Albertus( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in the 13th century, this work by St. Albert the Great explores the topic of resurrection both in terms of Biblical insights and in terms of classical philosophical concepts, especially those of Aristotle. This wide-ranging work discusses, among many other topics, the nature of the human soul, the relationship between the body and the soul, the nature of life after death, the resurrection of the body and incorruptibility of the body, natural and supernatural causes, the vision of God, and how and why the resurrection of Jesus Christ occurred. The original language is Latin"--
The Speculum astronomiae and its enigma : astrology, theology, and science in Albertus Magnus and his contemporaries by Paola Zambelli( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and Latin and held by 319 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

On the causes of the properties of the elements = (Liber de causis proprietatum elementorum) by Albertus( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert the Great's On the Causes of the Properties of the Elements investigates such diverse natural events as the formation of volcanoes, thermal springs, and mountains among the earth's topographical features. It examines the moon's influence on ocean tides and the astronomical events responsible for the biblical Noahide flood and for the regular flooding of the Nile. Albert explores the basic building blocks of the physical world, i.e., the four elements of the earth, air, fire and water - and their mixtures that form the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. He studies the postion of the earth, which he proves to be round, at the center of a planetary system that extends beyond the seven planets known to medieval astronomers to reach the outermost place of the universe occupied by a Prime Mover."--Publisher's description
