This wood engraving portrays Albertus Magnus (1193?-1280), also known as Saint Albert the Great and Albert of Cologne, who was a German Dominican friar and Catholic bishop. The inscription "Albert Le Grand Evesque de Ratisbonne" translates to "Albert the Great, Bishop of Regensburg," which was a role he filled for three years. The illustration comes from chapter 57 of the publication Les vrais pourtraits et vies des hommes illustres grecz, latins et payens by André Thévet, published in Paris in 1584.
