History Comes Alive Lecture Series 2017-18
Humanism and Medicine in the Italian Renaissance
Speaker: Craig Martin

Italian Renaissance humanists sought to recover and revive the ancient cultures of Greece and Rome. This recovery, and at times rediscovery, of ancient texts included the medical writings of Galen, Hippocrates and others. Renaissance physicians applied these writings to both their theoretical understanding of the human body and their practices.
