Saint Albert heralded from a wealthy and powerful German family. In 1223, he was ordained a Dominican Friar. He was a man of great intellect, teaching and writing about science, philosophy, and theology, to name a few, at the University of Paris and Cologne. One of his famous students was St. Thomas Aquinas. They both probed how faith, reason, and science could coexist. He worked to unite the East and West at the Council of Lyons. He suffered a slow slide into dementia till he died in 1280.
