Getz, Faye Marie (ed.), Healing and Society in Medieval England: A Middle English Translation of the Pharmaceutical Writings of Gilbertus Anglicus, Madison, Wisc., University of Wisconsin Press (Wisconsin publications in the history of science and medicine, 8), 1991, lxxiii + 378 pp.
- Originally composed in Latin by Gilbertus Anglicus (Gilbert the Englishman) before c. 1250, his Compendium of Medicine was a primary text of the medical revolution in thirteenth-century Europe. Composed mainly of medicinal recipes, it offered advice on diagnosis, medicinal preparation, and prognosis. In the fifteenth-century (MS from c. 1460) it was translated into Middle English to accommodate a widening audience for learning and medical "secrets." Faye Marie Getz provides a critical edition of the Middle English text, with an extensive introduction to the learned, practical, and social components of medieval medicine and a summary of the text in modern English. Getz also draws on both the Latin and Middle English texts to create an extensive glossary of little-known Middle English pharmaceutical and medical vocabulary.
