"Albertus Magnus has long been recognized as one of the greatest minds of the Middle Ages his contemporaries conferred upon him the titlenbspDoctor Universalis. An epitaph at his tomb described him as prince among philosophers, greater than Plato, and hardly inferior to King Solomon in wisdom. In 1941, Pope Pius XII named Albertus Magnus patron saint of scientists. In his worknbspDe animalibus,nbspAlbert integrated the vast amount of information on nature that had come down to him in previous centuries: the exposition of Michael Scotus17s translation from the Arabic of Aristotle17s books on the natural world (Books 11119), Albert17s own revisions to Aristotle17s teachings (Books 201121), and a 20dictionary21 of animals appropriated largely from thenbspDe natura rerumnbspof Thomas of Cantimpr#233 (Books 221126). Albert17s comprehensive treatise on living things was acknowledged as the reputable authority in biology for almost five hundred years. In this translated and annotated edition, Kenneth F. Kitchell Jr. andnbspIrven Michael Resnick illuminate the importance of this work, allowing Albert17s magnum opus to be better understood and more widely appreciated than ever before. Broken into two volumes (Books 11110 and 111126),Albertus Magnus On Animalsnbspis a veritable medieval scientific encyclopedia, ranging in topics from medicine, embryology, and comparative anatomy to women, hunting and everyday life, commerce, and much more12an essential work for historians, medievalists, scientists, and philosophers alike. nbspnbspnbsp nbsp nbsp
