MEDI 2016-2017!

 

February 4, 2017 :30th Annual Workshop – Medieval Medicine

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 1.40.37 PMBoth a science and an art, medicine is a hot topic in the Middle Ages: inherited from Antiquity, transferred from other cultures and countries, universal in its categories and relevance but individual in its practice and diagnostication, medical knowledge is the “physics” of the physicians (an expertise on natural laws and elements) and the practice of healing through the restoration of a natural balance.  The workshop will emphasize the many faces of medicine:  science, magic, religion, philosophy, psychology, art and society, etc.  (Image Wiki Commons, European depiction of the Persian physician Rhazes, in Gerard of Cremona’s Recueil des traités de médecine, 1250-1260.)
