About this book

As well as being an important medieval theologian, Albertus Magnus (Albert the Great) also made significant contributions to the study of astronomy, geography and natural philosophy, and his studies of the natural world led Pope Pius XII to declare Albertus the patron saint of the natural sciences. Dante Alighieri acknowledged a substantial debt to Albertus' work, and in The Divine Comedy placed him equal with his celebrated student and brother Dominican Thomas Aquinas.

In this, the first full, scholarly biography in English for nearly a century, Irven M. Resnick and Kenneth F. Kitchell Jr narrate Albertus' key contributions to natural philosophy and the history of science, while also revealing the insights into medieval life and customs that his writings provide.

Media reviews

"This study of the natural philosophy of Albert the Great is as illuminating as its subject, whom the fourteenth-century Dominican Henry of Herford described as "the brightest sun from among all of the philosophers of the whole of Christendom". Resnick and Kitchell have masterfully filled a significant lacuna in anglophone scholarship on Albertus Magnus. Highly recommended."
– Franklin T. Harkins, Boston College

"Another one of those solid and valuable pieces of scholarship that we have come to expect from Resnick and Kitchell – this time a book that manages to be both an accessible introduction and a useful companion to their heroic translation of Albertus Magnus' colossal On Animals."
– Bruno Tremblay, St Jerome's University, Ontario

"Irven M. Resnick and Kenneth F. Kitchell Jr's Albertus Magnus and the World of Nature is a truly worthy tribute to the life and work of the Doctor universalis. One of the first of its kind in the Anglo-American research community, this book offers a reliable general introduction to Albertus Magnus and presents his view of the natural world to a wide audience."
– Henryk Anzulewicz, Albertus Magnus Institut, Bonn
