Medicinal Substances in Jerusalem from Early Times to the Present Day
Jerusalem's handy location at the point where east meets west ensured that the greatest variety of plants and minerals were available to the city's physicians and quacks. This volume, which focuses on the Byzantine period through to the present day, largely comprises an A-Z of substances followed by a discussion of 19th-century treatments and traditional remedies that can still be bought in Jerusalem today.
