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.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
