Krankheitstypen und Bezeichnungen von Krankheiten im 17. / 18. Jahrhundert an Hand von drei medizinischen Büchern : eine Miszelle

  • The paper contains an analysis of typologies and designations of diseases in three medical handbooks dating from the turn of the 18th century. These guides for non-experts inform readers how plant remedies help prevent and fight diseases. The classification in the books is based on the parts of the body affected by the disease. Frequently, neither the definitions nor the causes of the diseases correspond to those found in contemporary medical books.
