This volume brings together contributions covering different periods of the history of ancient pharmacology and medical writing, from Greek, Byzantine, and Syriac medicine to the Rabbinic-Talmudic medical discourses. It highlights the overwhelming mass of information about drugs and remedies in classical and late-antique sources, and traces the transmission and transformation of pharmacological knowledge across cultural and linguistic boundaries.
