Review "...a useful, important, and welcomed contribution to the bookshelf of every student of premodern science." Bulletin of the History of Medicine "...written in an engaging style and with a broad historical sweep..." History "...the book is a lucid and well-organized introduction to the European Latin tradition of medicine, covering a long time-span, synthesising a vast array of material and research into a coherent framework, useful to students and experts in the field alike." Robert Juette, Instituts fur Geschichte der Medizin der Robert Bosch Stiftung "The book will surely raise the interest of future scholars and serve them well." American Historical Review Book Description This book offers an introduction to the history of university-trained physicians from the middle ages to the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. These were the elite, in reputation and rewards, and they were successful. Yet we can form little idea of their clinical effectiveness, and to modern eyes their theory and practice often seems bizarre. But the historical evidence is that they were judged on other criteria, and the argument of this book is that these physicians helped to construct the expectations of society--and met them accordingly.
