Medicine and Society in Later Medieval England
Carole Rawcliffe (au)
Explains the development & practice of medieval medicine (MM). Examines the prevalence of death & disease in late medieval England, & the limitations of medical theory in dealing with such problems as epidemics, wounds, mortality in childbirth & even relatively minor ailments. Having examined current theory, the author deals with the way that physicians, surgeons & apothecaries organized themselves, their financial & social position, & contemporary attitudes towards them. ‘Self help’ played an important part in MM, & women were expected to treat & care for their own families. Hospitals existed for the destitute. “An authoritative analysis & a highly readable survey of a fascinating aspect of medieval life.” Over 80 color & b&w illus.
