In Medizin im Konflikt, Jana Madlen Schütte analyses the status of medical doctors between university and market in the Middle Ages and at the beginning of the early modern period. Their positon initially at the universities as well as on the medical market was precarious. As the smallest faculty, medicine had to stand up to the other disciplines. Meanwhile, as participants in the medical market, the faculty members had to face competitors such as barbers, surgeons, apothecaries, and Jewish doctors. Jana Madlen Schütte explores how this situation of dual conflict affected the actions of the medical doctors and the strategies that they employed to demonstrate that their approaches were scientific as well as practical.
