The Prince of Medicine
Galen in the Roman EmpireBook - 2013
Galen of Pergamum (A.D. 129 - ca. 216) began his remarkable career tending to wounded gladiators in provincial Asia Minor. Later in life he achieved great distinction as one of a small circle of court physicians to the family of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, at the very heart of Roman society. Susan Mattern's 'The Prince of Medicine' offers the first authoritative biography in English of this brilliant, audacious, and profoundly influential figure.
