St. Albert's Day is celebrated in honor of St. Albert Magnus, known as Albert the Great, who was a scientist, philosopher and theologian, and served as a mentor to St. Thomas Aquinas.  During his lifetime, he composed a veritable encyclopedia which contained scientific treatises on almost every subject.  His life and writings emphasized the importance of experiment and investigation.
