Rei Medicae Praelectiones Theoricae Proemialium Quaestionum

Silvia Marinozzi


In the Early Modern Age anatomy, physiology and clinical medicine become complimentary, subject to the same rational and systematic methodology. This contribution deals with a manuscript by Paulus De Valle, pupil of Paolo Manfredi, Lector of Medicina Theorica in the University of Rome. Manfredi's teaching follows modern authors: Harvey, on blood circulation and embryology, Bartholin on lymphatic vessels, Willis on anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. The manuscript sheds new light on the teaching of Medicine at Rome Studium in the 17th century.

Key words: Theoretical medicine - Paolo Manfredi - University of Rome - Blood circulation
