Leprosy in Premodern Medicine

Leprosy in Premodern Medicine

English | 27 Jun. 2007 | ISBN: 0801886139 | 344 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

While premodern poets and preachers viewed leprosy as a "disease of the soul," physicians in the period understood it to be a "cancer of the whole body." In this innovative study, medical historian Luke Demaitre explores medical and social perspectives on leprosy at a time when judicious diagnosis could spare healthy people from social ostracization and help the afflicted get a license to beg.
