about

This collection, by an international team of scholars, presents exciting research currently being undertaken on early modern Italy which questions the conventional boundaries of medical history.
  • Brings together historians of medicine and scholars of different backgrounds who are re-visiting the field from new perspectives and with the support of innovative questions and unexplored sources
  • Explores crucial areas of intersection between the territory of medicine and that of law, politics, religion, art and material culture and highlights the connections between these apparently separate fields
  • Challenges our understanding of what we regard as medical activities, medical identities, spaces and objects
  • Addresses the study of medical careers, medical identities and spaces where medical activities were performed e.g. apothecary shops, courtrooms, convents and museums
Sandra Cavallo is Reader in Early Modern History at Royal Holloway, University of London. David Gentilcore is Reader in History at the University of Leicester.
