Item description for L'Ophtalmologie Dans L'Egypte Greco-Romaine D'Apres Papyrus Litteraires Grecs (Studies in Ancient Medicine, V.8) (French Edition) by Marie-Helene Marganne...

The recurring problems of eye-disease in Egypt account for the importance that ophthalmology has always had in this country. Eye-diseases and their treatment in Greco-Roman Egypt are documented by a remarkable but insufficiently known body of material: Greek literary papyri, which are often the only witnesses to lost medical works and which provide evidence of original theories, practices and terminology. The first part of this book provides an introduction to ancient ophthalmology, to the medical literature of Greco-Roman Egypt and to Greek medical papyri. The second part presents a critical edition (with a French translation and commentary) of the papyri with theoretical expositions, and a chapter on ophthalmic recipes. FRENCH TEXT Eu egard aux affections oculaires qui y sevissent depuis toujours, l'ophtalmologie ne cessa d'occuper une place preponderante en Egypte. Pour la periode greco-romaine, on dispose d'une documentation remarquable mais meconnue: des papyrus litteraires grecs, souvent seuls temoins d'oeuvres medicales perdues, qui attestent theories, pratiques et vocabulaire originaux. Apres une introduction sur l'ophtalmologie antique, la litterature medicale de l'Egypte greco-romaine et les papyrus grecs de medecine, le livre presente l'edition critique, avec traduction et commentaires, des papyrus contenant des exposes theoriques, ainsi qu'un chapitre sur les prescriptions ophtalmologiques. Il s'adresse aux philologues classiques, aux papyrologues, aux orientalistes, aux egyptologues, aux historiens de la medecine et aux ophtalmologues interesses par l'histoire de leur discipline.
