2013 Etinne Gilson Lecture by Faith Wallis, McGill University

The Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies invites you to attend the 2013 ETIENNE GILSON LECTURE:
Medicine and the Renaissance of the 12th Century

Faith Wallis, McGill University, Department of History and Classical Studies/Department of Social Studies of Medicine

Faith Wallis is a historian of medieval Europe, specializing in the history of science and medicine. She has published translations and studies of medieval time-reckoning (computus) and medicine. Her current research focuses on medical education and the transmission of medical knowledge in the 12th century. She is preparing an edition of the earliest commentaries on the Articella, the first anthology of medical texts designed to support formal teaching to be created in Western Europe. The Articella marks the birth of academic medicine, and these commentaries allow us to reconstruct the intellectual dynamics of this crucial event. Prof. Wallis teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the history of medicine, ancient medicine, medieval medicine, and general medieval history.
