Women's Healthcare in the Medieval West: Texts and Contexts

Front Cover
Ashgate, Jan 1, 2000 - History - 412 pages
In this collection of seven major essays (one of them published here for the first time), Monica Green argues that a history of women's healthcare in medieval western Europe has not yet been written because it cannot yet be written - as the vast majority of texts relating to women's healthcare have never been edited or studied.
