Hildegard of Bingen, Medieval Thought, and Modern Medicine
Benjamin Doolittle | 12pm, Oct 4
We shall discuss the features of Hildegard's work, Causa et Cura, and her particular approach to healing that acknowledges the prevailing medical understanding of the medieval age with Christian doctrine and folk medicine. We shall also discuss the implications of her original ideas upon modern medicine.
Benjamin Dootlittle is Associate Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Yale Medical School and Associate Professor of Religion and Health at Yale Divinity School.
