THE ICONOGRAPHY OF ILLNESS IN THE MIDDLE AGE: TWO SWABIAN DOCUMENTS

Giulia Orofino

Abstract


 

Two herbaria, dating at the end of XIII century and now in Florence and Vienna, offer an interesting documentation about the history of medicina and pharmacy in Italian Southern Italy during Federico II's age. Their inluminures allow to paint a faithful picture of the medioeval attitude towards illness and pain. 

 

Key words: Herbaria - Illness - Middle Age
