Early Book Lecture Series XVI, Hortus Sanitatis: A Natural History of Health in the Late Middle Ages

April 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

UA scholars will explore medieval texts held by Special Collections.
Speaker: Paul Milliman

In 1491 Jakob Meydenbach published an incredibly detailed natural history encyclopedia, the Hortus Sanitatis or “Garden of Health.” The words and wondrous woodcut illustrations in this book catalog European knowledge of the health benefits of the plants, animals, and minerals of the known and imagined world on the eve of the Columbian Exchange.

Paul Milliman is an associate professor in the History Department. His research and teaching focus on games and food as well as the making of Europe in the global Middle Ages.
