Product description

Location: Roman Empire, Europe Time Period: Classical Antiquity (1000 B.C. - 500 A.D.) Rome 129 A.D. We know about Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine. But we owe nearly as much to Galen, a physician born in 129 A.D. at the height of the Roman Empire. Galen's acute diagnoses of patients, his botanical wisdom and studies of physiology were recorded in numerous books, handed down through the Middle Ages and Renaissance. He developed sports medicine, doctoring gladiators. Not least, Galen passed on the medical tradition of respect for life. In this fascinating biography for young people, Jeanne Bendick brings Galen's Roman world alive with the clarity, humor, and outstanding content we enjoyed in Archimedes and the Door to Science. An excellent addition to schools, libraries, and homes; ideal for home education. Type: Paperback () Category: Books > Faith ISBN / UPC: 9781883937751/1883937752 Publish Date: 10/1/2002 Item No: 141286 Vendor: Bethlehem Books
