What can we learn from the earliest Christian book of science, “Physiologus”?

Physiologus, the fascinating early Christian text consisting of descriptions and often lavish illustrations of animals, plants, minerals, and some fantastic creatures, is analysed by Stavros Lazaris in his trilogy of books.
