"A wonderful and totally original exploration of the entire world of medieval diseases, organized through the medieval physician's own eyes and often expressed in his own words: the symptoms he observed in his patients, the underlying causes he recognized, and the treatments he offered for each one, all set out by Demaitre with intelligence, clarity, humor, historical sensitivity, and no condescension towards the past whatsoever. There has never been a book like it before."Michael McVaugh, William Smith Wells Professor of History (Emeritus), University of North Carolina"This book will be of great value to anyone seeking to understand academic medicine of the high and late Middle Ages."Linda Ehrsam Voigts, Curators' Professor of English Emerita, University of Missouri-Kansas CityAbout the Author :
"Luke Demaitre is a ʻmaitreʼ of the field. Gracefully written, insightfully
synthesized, and provocatively imagined, this volume is a must-read for anyone
interested in the history of medicine, whether modern or medieval. As both a
practicing physician and a teaching historian, I will turn to Medieval Medicine as a
source of inspiration, caution and authoritative information on a regular basis.
You should too."
