Secreta Mulierum is a manuscript from the late thirteenth or early fourteenth century frequently attributed to Albertus Magnus , although it is often thought to be more likely written by one of his followers. Drawing on Hippocratic, Galenic, and Aristotelian theories on sex and reproduction, this narrative discusses the male scientific views of female nature in the Middle Ages and early modern period from both a medical and philosophical perspective. Over eighty manuscript copies of the treatise have been identified, and it has been translated into multiple different languages over the centuries. Owing to both the medical and philosophical nature of the text, a variety of topics are discussed by pseudo-Albert. While some of the thirteen chapters are strictly medical such as signs of conception, period of gestation, and the nature of the menses, others are largely theoretical.
