Medicine in the Medieval North Atlantic World,
19-21 March 2020
This interdisciplinary conference explores the reception and transmission of medical knowledge between and across England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and Scandinavia during the medieval period, and draws on history, literature, science, religion, linguistics, archaeology and manuscript studies. It interrogates medical texts and ideas in both Latin and vernacular languages, addressing questions of translation, cultural and scientific inheritance and exchange, and historical conceptions of health and of the human being within nature.
