Albertus Magnus (ca. 1200 – 1280) is one of the most important medieval philosophers and theologians, and one of the very few to have been recognized as an auctoritas in his lifetime. Despite this fact, his ideas remain relatively understudied. There are a number of philosophical and historical reasons for this, but problems such as scarce or incomplete modern editions, as well as the sheer number and volume of his works, play a part. The aim of the Alberti Magni e-corpus project is to support research on Albert the Great by providing scholars the possibility : 1) to download image files of Albert’s works that can be found in editions no longer covered by copyright laws; 2) more importantly, to search 40 of those works electronically, using a Boolean search engine which gives access to a corpus of approximately 14,700 pages in print or 6.3 million words.
