A Millennium of Medical Books with Paul Potter
Six medical books kept in the Jason A. Hannah Collection of Western's ARCC, dating from between 512 (a facsimile) and 1588 AD, will be examined as evidence for the important role the book played in the development and transmission of medical knowledge and practice over a thousand-year period. Questions of their production, circulation, historical context, and scientific significance will be discussed, as well as various technical and economic aspects of their textual form and illustration. Five of the actual books will be available for direct inspection.

Join us in person at the Reading Room in Western's ARCC or register for Zoom to join us online!
