25 Dec 2003
Considers how the body was viewed by the medical profession from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, and challenges established ideas in the field of medical history. Examines the provision of medical care in context and how it was shaped by the social, religious, political and cultural concerns of the age. Arranged thematically and with brief but scholarly introductions, the selection of documents includes contemporary sources, recent research in the field and classical writings. Written in an accessible style by an Open University lecturer. Companion volume to The Healing Arts: Health, Disease and Society in Europe 1500-1800.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative. 26 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book as a 'set book' for an Open University course. It contains extracts from works by authors from the period covered by the book and modern historians. I found the book very interesting and informative - although best read in conjunction with the couse for which it was purchased.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent source for medical historians 10 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback
Yes, it is an excellent resource, but only if used in conjunction with the text, and as this is an Open University publication, it forms part of a course. However, it will appeal to students and readers of medieval history, scientific history and the history of medicine for that period.
Because of the high price, I can only give it a max. of four stars
