9780801863547: Medicine, Society, and Faith in the Ancient and Medieval Worlds

In Medicine, Society, and Faith in the Ancient and Medieval Worlds, Darrel Amundsen explores the disputed boundaries of medicine and Christianity by focusing on the principle of the sanctity of human life, including the duty to treat or attempt to sustain the life of the ill. As he examines his themes and moves from text to context, Amundsen clarifies a number of Christian principles in relation to bioethical issues that are hotly debated today. In his examination of the moral stance of the earliest syphilographers, for example, he finds insights into the ethical issues surrounding the treatment of AIDS, which he believes has its closest historical antecedent not in plague but in syphilis. He also shows that the belief that all healing comes from God, whether directly, through prayer, or through the use of medicine -- a sentiment commonly held by contemporary Christians -- cannot be accurately attributed to any extant source from the patristic period. Indeed, all the Church Fathers were convinced that healing sometimes came from evil sources: Satan and his demons were able to heal, for example, and Asclepius was a demon "to be taken very seriously indeed".

Recensione:

A cause for celebration for all students of ancient and medieval medicine and for those interested in the interaction between medicine and the Christian faith, institutions, and ethics... Amundsen's articles show the scope of the contribution by the cultural history of medicine to ancient and medieval history in general. Nobody working on late antiquity, early Christianity, and the Middle Ages, or interested in religion, healing, and medical ethics, can afford to overlook it.

( Medieval Review)

L'autore:
