“Do there exist many worlds, or is there but a single world? This is one of the most noble and exalted questions in the study of Nature.”

– Albertus Magnus

 

Albertus Magnus was a 13th-century Dominican friar known for his contributions to philosophy and natural sciences such as mathematics, astronomy, and metaphysics. His work represents the entirety of European knowledge from the 13th-century, particularly in pairing Aristotelian knowledge with Christian doctrine.

 

This exceedingly rare 16th-century printing is of Albertus’ writings on ethics and virtue. In this book, his view points on natural philosophy are discussed in relation to the development of a Christian’s relationship with God and whether or not Aristotelian philosophy would hinder that spiritual growth. Albertus begins this work with describing the love for God:

“True love for God is completed when there is no more searching for him, for the sake of nobility, goodness, wisdom, holiness, and perfection; he is the God.”

Like in many of his works, Albertus compares metaphysical and philosophical ideas to moral goodness and religion.
