Albric (Albericus, or Alfricius)
Albric (Albericus, Or Alfricius), an English philosopher and physician, was born in London about 1080 or (according to others) 1220. He is said to have studied at Oxford and Cambridge; and to have travelled for improvement. He had the reputation of a great philosopher, an able physician, and was well versed in general literature. Bale, in his Third Century, has enumerated the following works of Albric: De Origine Deorsumn: — De Ratione Veneni: — Virtutes
Antiquorum:Canones Speculativi. The full title of the third work is Summa de Virtutibus Antiquorum Principium, et Philosophorum, and it is still extant in the library of Worcester Cathedral. The same library contains a work by Albric entitled Mythologia. None of these works have been printed. In the Mythographi Latini (Amsterdam, 1681, 2 vols. 12mo) is a small treatise, DeDeorum Imaginibus, written by a person of the same name; but it is doubtful whether this is not Albricus, bishop of Utrecht, in the 8th century.
