Item description for A History of Jewish Gynaecological Texts in the Middle Ages (Brill's Series in Jewish Studies, Vol. 20) by Ron Barkai...

This study covers the history of medieval Hebrew medicine, in particular Jewish women's medicine. It examines the origins of medieval Jewish medicine in Muslim countries, the main Arabic and Judeo-Arabic texts, and the renaissance of Hebrew as a language of science in the 12th-15th centuries. There follows a survey and analysis of the 15 extant medieval Jewish gynaecological texts (including translations from Greek, Latin and Arabic, as well as original Hebrew treatises), and a comparison of the particular characteristics of Jewish gynaecology to the Latin and Arabic traditions. In the second part of the work, the author presents critical editions with translations of six medieval Jewish gynaecological texts.
