The World of Master Bartholomaeus: Medicine, Reform, and Renaissance in the 12th Century

Faith Wallis, Associate Professor, Department of History/Department of Social Studies of Medicine, McGill University (Canada)
 

Faith Wallis

Prof. Faith Wallis’s research centers on how western medieval peoples transmitted, received, and transformed ideas, information, and techniques relating to the natural world and the human body through texts and their manuscript vehicles. Two areas of particular concentration are the development of an academic literature of medicine in the 12th century (notably through the creation of the “Articella” anthology), and the medieval sciences of time-reckoning.


Location: Medieval Institute Reading Room (715 Hesburgh Library)

Time: 5:00 p.m. 

A short reception will follow the lecture.
