    Epidemics in Context

    Greek Commentaries on Hippocrates in the Arabic Tradition

    Ed. by Pormann, Peter E.

    Series:Scientia Graeco-Arabica 8

      Aims and Scope

      The Hippocratic Epidemics and Galen’s Commentary on them constitute milestones in the development of clinical medicine. But they also illustrate the rich exegetical traditions that existed in the post-classical Greek world. The present volume investigates these texts from various and diverse vantage points: textual criticism; Greek philology; knowledge transfer through translations; and medical history. Especially the Syriac and Arabic traditions of the Epidemics come under scrutiny.
