9780754667070: Healing, Performance and Ceremony in the Writings of Three Early Modern Physicians: Hippolytus Guarinonius and the Brothers Felix and Thomas Platter

In early modern Europe medicine and theatre were often regarded as part of the same popular culture. Itinerant medical 'quacks' and troupes of actors were both integral parts of everyday life, each drawing upon theatricality to attract customers and promote their services. In this study, the writings of three renowned physicians - the Swiss Platter brothers and their Austrian colleague Guarinonius - are used to explore the often neglected interfaces between healing and performance. Their descriptions of German, French and Italian travelling players are examined in detail, with particular emphasis on the reaction of these 'respectable' physicians to the depiction and use of medical issues. Translations of substantial sections of their writings, supplemented with examination of visual sources, are offered to provide a vivid sense of just how medicine and theatre interacted on a popular level. By taking such an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, the reader is able to consider documents that, despite being closely related, are often not analysed together in meaningful ways. In so doing these theatrical writings are located in their rightful place within the mainstream of medical and theatre history, broadening our knowledge of the interface between healing and performance.

Descrizione libro Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 236 x 166 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. While the writings of early modern medical practitioners habitually touch on performance and ceremony, few illuminate them as clearly as the Protestant physicians Felix Platter and Thomas Platter the Younger, who studied in Montpellier and practiced in their birth town of Basle, or the Catholic physician Hippolytus Guarinonius, who was born in Trent, trained in Padua and practiced in Hall near Innsbruck. During his student years and brilliant career as early modern Basle s most distinguished municipal, court and academic physician, Felix Platter built up a wide network of private, religious and aristocratic patients. His published medical treatises and private journal record his professional encounters with them as a healer. They also offer numerous vivid accounts of theatrical events experienced by Platter as a scholar, student and gifted semi-professional musician, and during his Grand Tour and long medical career. Here Felix Platter s accounts, many unavailable in translation, are examined together with relevant extracts from the journals of his younger brother Thomas Platter, and Guarinonius s medical and religious treatises. Thomas Platter is known to Shakespeare scholars as the Swiss Grand Tourist who recorded a 1599 London performance of Julius Caesar, and Guarinonius s descriptions of quack performances represent the earliest substantial written record of commedia dell arte lazzi, or comic stage business. These three physicians records of ceremony, festival, theatre, and marketplace diversions are examined in detail, with particular emphasis on the reactions of respectable medical practitioners to healing performers and the performance of healing. Taken as a whole, their writings contribute to our understanding of many aspects of European theatrical culture and its complex interfaces with early modern healthcare: in carnival and other routine manifestations of the Christian festive year, in the extraordinary performance and ceremony of court festivals, and above all in the rarely welcomed intrusions of quacks and other itinerant performers.
