The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny

The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny Online

In the world of 16th century Venice, medicine is predominantly the profession of men. Yet Gabriella Mondini, herself the daughter of a renowned physician, manages to make her way into the ranks of practitioners—until her father disappears in the midst of researching his encyclopedia on disease. Her position in jeopardy and guided by the letters he left behind, Gabriella sets out to find her father, keeping her own medical notes on diseases and treatment as she follows the trail through Europe.

A presentation of materials related to medicine in early modern Europe will precede the discussion.
