A presentation within
BabMed Seminar 2
Greek and Babylonian Medicine – A Comparative View
Winter Semester 2015/2016
Tuesday, 6-8 pm, Bibliothek TOPOI-Haus, Hittorfstraße 18, 14195 Berlin
Convened by Markham J. Geller/Principal Investigator BabMed
The presentation will provide a brief overview of the Mesopotamian material. Then it will turn to the comparative questions on what is ‘unique’ and/or ‘universal’ in the ancient therapeutic texts dealing with eye diseases. In order to shed some light on these questions, the Mesopotamian ophthalmological practices will be compared with the Ancient Egyptian material, Dioscorides, the Syrian Book of Medicine, Celsus De Medicina, and the Hippocratic Treatise On the Eye.
The BabMed Seminar 2 is being organised in cooperation with TOPOI excellence cluster Berlin Dahlem.
