Armengaud Blaise or Blaise (d. 1312), a nephew of the celebrated medieval medical & theological figure Arnau de Vilanova (d.1311), is becoming better known, thanks in large part to the documentation preserved in the Archivo de la Corona de Aragon. Armengaud became a practicing physician and went to Barcelona at the end of 1303 to serve the king & queen, & later became physician to Pope Clement V at Avignon. He helped turn Latin into at least five works from the earlier tradition of Greco-Arabic scientific learning & also wrote at least two original medical compositions. The second of these, called the “Tabula Antidotarii,” is a summary list of a number of common compound medicines together with their properties, arranged in tabular form. This book provides a study of Armengaud & the Latin “Tabula Antidotarii”; Estori ha-Parhi & the Hebrew translation of the “Tabula”; & The Latin & Hebrew texts. It also includes the English, Latin & Hebrew texts of the “Tabula”; facsimile pages; the translator’s intro.; Table 1: The sequence of drugs in the manuscripts; Documentation in the Crown of Aragon concerning Armengaud Blaise; Bibliography; Index of Proper Names; Hebrew-Latin Index; & Latin-Hebrew Index.
