Join us on Zoom for a talk given by Fr Conor McDonough O.P. St Albert the Great (1200-1280) was a theologian, philosopher, preacher, and a pioneering scientist. He wrote works on meteorology, botany, zoology, chemistry, placing great importance on the testing of theories by observation and experiment. This talk will outline the full range of St. Albert's scientific work, from observations of hawks to strange ideas about the feeding habits of hedgehogs, showing thereby the vitality and curiosity of medieval Christian culture.
