St. Albert the Great Gifts and Collectables
A Dominican scientist, Albert (1200-1280) dedicated himself to studying and lecturing about the natural sciences. His work with geography, astronomy, and chemistry was advanced, but he was behind in the science of biology. He was long suspected as a wizard, but he escaped the Inquisition because he was Dominican. St. Albert is know as one of the greatest German philosophers and theologians of the Middle Ages. Three years after his death, Albert's body was exhumed and was found to be incorrupt.
