Les Médecins dans le monde grec : Sources épigraphiques sur la naissance d'un corps médical

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Greek epigraphy has far more than an incidental role in our understanding of the history of the medical profession in Antiquity. These 525 translated and annotated inscriptions give witness to the daily life of medical practitioners, such as the practice of medicine by a woman in Athens in the fourth century BC; the conscientiousness of public doctors in Hellenistic cities; the tributes paid by the assemblies to deserving practitioners; the career of a doctor in Cos in the second century BC; thanks given by grateful patients; and the organization of competitions between doctors in second-century Ephesus. It is clear from these inscriptions that the training, statutes and working conditions of these men and women varied considerably, until doctors gradually ceased to be itinerant and organized themselves into a professional body with a common code of ethics.
