Prof. Maciej Kokoszko, dr. Zofia Rzeźnicka and dr. Krzysztof Jagusiak attended an international seminar devoted to the translation of the treatise De simplicium medicamentorum temperamentis ac facultatibus by Galen of Pergamum.
The aim of the seminar was to discuss the English translation of the said work by prof. John Wilkins (University of Exeter) among academics representing such research areas as the history of medicine and philosophy. The participants had also the opportunity to smell and taste some of the aromatics that were used in medicine at the time of Galen.
The seminar took place between May 20 and 21 2019 in Berlin at Humboldt University. It was organised by prof. Philip van der Eijk.
