"Were there advances in medicine in Medieval Europe and elsewhere in the world? How great was the impact of the break-up of the Roman Empire, and the growth of the Church, on medical practice and public health? This book examines beliefs and practices, public health and plague, to demonstrate that while learning was limited, there were important developments in the Islamic world and Europe itself."
