De Medicina

In this series, Prof. Noe looks at “De Medicina” (Medicine) by Aulus Cornelius Celsus, a 1st century A.D. encyclopedist, known as Celsus.

“De Medicina” is a part of a much larger encyclopedia, most of which has not come down to us. Celsus discusses diseases, medicines, and other treatments known to the Greeks and Romans.
