Abstract: Fuchs and Guillebaud. Dupèbe's translation presents several useful references and clarifications in footnotes, which make this edition fruitful. The detailed introduction vividly inserts the apology into its context, showing not only erudition but also the capacity to reveal an important section of the history of medicine. The entire volume compellingly interconnects salient features of Renaissance culture: theological reformation, humanism, medicine, heresy, and controversy.
