Medicine and Religion in Enlightenment Europe
Ole Peter Grell, Dr. Andrew Cunningham
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2007 - History - 267 pages
This volume explores the relationship between medicine and religion during the Enlightenment Period, here understood as covering the years 1650 to 1789. It looks at this multi-faceted relationship with respect to among others: medical care and death in hospitals, religious vocation and nursing, chemical medicine and religion, the clergy and medicine, the continued significance of popular medicine, faith healing, dissection and religion, and religious dissent and medical innovation. Within these significant areas the volume provides a European perspective which will make it possible to draw comparisons and determine differences.
