Medicine and Religion in Enlightenment Europe
Ole Peter Grell, Dr. Andrew Cunningham
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2007 - Medical - 267 pages

However, recent scholarship suggests that this may well be an overstatement and that religion retained many of its customary relations with medicine. This text explores how far this was true.
