What you’ll do
Hear Tessa Storey discuss the ‘Regimen Sanitatis’, a manuscript published by the famous medieval medical school of Salerno. The preface suggests that its authors intended their medical advice to reach a wide audience. Using a copy of the text held in Wellcome Collection, this talk will explore how vernacular medical knowledge was spread among ‘ordinary people’ in early modern Italy.
Following the presentation from our speaker, there will be an opportunity to discuss her ideas.
