"Physiologus, Fisiologia and the Rise of Christian Nature Symbolism"
Michael J. Curley
Viator: Medieval and Renaissance Studies, 11, 1980, 1-10
 

"The anonymous author of Physiologus infused these venerable pagan tales with the spirit of Christian moral and mystical teaching, and thereafter they occupied a place of special importance in the symbolism of the Cristian world. ... In the following remarks I shall attempt to outline the development of a Christian concept of φυσιολογία, and then go on to show how the author of Physiologus set about to compile his anthology of legends in conformity to the early Christian notion of φυσιολογία." - Curley
