1240), De floribus naturalium rerum of Arnoldus Saxo (ca. 1225), and the Speculum maius ofVincent of Beauvais (1240-1260). In this article I will discuss the conceptual stage of the making of a medieval Latin encyclopedia with special attention to the thirteenth century.

While we await Esti Eisenmann's doctoral study of Ahavah ba-Ta'anugim, it should be remembered there are other Hebrew encyclopedias, also extant only in manuscript, that need to be examined and studied. There is still need to continue the identification of the sources of the encyclopedias. Comparisons of the texts with their sources are always very helpful and appreciated.
