An Odyssey of Knowledge: Medieval Manuscripts and Early Printed Books from the National Library of Medicine
This online exhibition examines how medical science took root in Southern Europe, was absorbed and modified by local medical practice and knowledge, and spread into the hinterland and beyond. It shows how European medicine is the result of the confluence of different streams of thoughts - from classical antiquity to pre-modern science, from Greece to Western Europe, and from discoverie s based on reason to those rooted in tradition and experience .
