Bos, Gerrit - McVaugh, Michael R. (eds.), Maimonides, On Poisons and the Protection against Lethal Drugs, Provo (Utah), Brigham Young University (Medical Works of Moses Maimonides, edited by Gerrit Bos, 5), 2009, 494 pp.
- Moshe ben Maimon, or Moses Maimonides (1135-1204), remains one of the most celebrated rabbis in this history of Judaism; his numerous writings include philosophical and medical treatises in Arabic, two of history's most important works on Jewish law, and, most notably, efforts to reconcile Aristotelian philosophy with biblical teaching. The Complete Medical Works, edited by Gerrit Bos of the Martin-Buber-Institut fur Judaistik at the University of Cologne, collects the entirety of Maimonides's medical writings.
The volume 5 consists of a critical edition of the Arabic text of Maimonides' treatise On Poisons and the Protection against Lethal Drugs with modern English translation, next to critical editions of the medieval Hebrew translations, and Latin translations.
