This course covers several aspects and a selection of crucial episodes
of the history of medicine (social, intellectual, institutional) up to
1800.  Great emphasis is given to using a wide range of historical
artifacts, including text, illustrations, and objects.  We will
discuss Greek medicine and Hippocrates, the anatomical revival from
Vesalius to Harvey, microscopy, and the links between theory and
medical practice.
