St. Albert the Great

 Saint Albert the Great

Saint Albert lived during the 13th century and was born in Lauingen, Germany during the reign of Emperor Frederick II. Saint Albert’s father was a military lord in the army at that time.

Saint Albert attended the University of Padua and met Blessed Jordan of Saxony. Blessed Jordan traveled throughout Europe visiting universities and enlisting promising men to join the Dominicans.


Saint Albert Joins the Dominicans

Albert joined the monastery and became a teacher. He gave lectures in theology in 1241 at the University of Paris. The Dominicans assigned Saint Albert to form a learning center in Cologne for the monks of the order. He brought together many new theologians of the time, including, St. Thomas Aquinas to be his students.

Saint Albert the Great was made Bishop of Regensberg in 1260. Three years later, he became the papal advisor and traveling diplomat. After resigning his position in Cologne in 1274, he participated in the Council of Lyons. Even as an old man he traveled to Paris to help defend one of his prized pupils, Thomas Aquinas.

 Saint Albert the Scientist

While Saint Albert was in Cologne, he became a renowned scientist. He experimented in chemistry and physics, horticulture, studied insects, and chemical compounds. He made significant contributions to education and theology.

Saint Albert grew to be a very old man, dying in Cologne on November 15, 1280. He was buried in Cologne at St. Andrea’s Church. Pope Pius XI canonized him a saint and a Doctor of the Church in 1931.


 St. Albert Patron Saint

Because of his many contributions to science, Saint Albert was named the Patron Saint of Scientists. Many Christians wear a Saint Albert medal to encourage them to pursue their studies with the enthusiasm of St. Albert. A St. Albert necklace is a popular gift for students who are entering colleges and universities as a reminder of the importance of knowledge for both science and religion.
