Searching the name of a book


New Member
Hey there, I need help with a book title. A few years ago I stumbled upon a book in Latin which had a name that meant something close to ''random'' ''miscellaneous'' and from what I've read about the book it was about different subjects with no direct relation between them. For example it described monsters in a chapter and the other was about something trivial. I don't remember if the book have any author or it was written by a monk or philosopher. I think it was written somewhere like 400-800 CE. The title was a made-up word which entered the lexicon afterwards if I remember correctly. Sorry for my English and for the messy expression. Thank you!

I don't know what all was in it, but there was Pico della Mirandola's De Re Scibili.
