Galen and the Gateway to Medicine [SCM]

Meet the medical researcher whose work and writings would be revered as a standard of authority by both Christian and Muslim worlds for the next 1300 years. One day some of Galen's theories of human physiology would be corrected. But the foundation of all his work, a respect for the unity of the human person in body and spirit, would be handed on--as he himself had received it in the Hippocratic tradition.
