Page from a text that formed the standard 13th-century medical curriculum

On January 19, Curator Dot Porter will bring out LJS 24, a collection of 10th- through early 13th-century texts that formed the standard 13th-century medical curriculum (referred to and printed in the Renaissance under the collective title Articella), here copied in the mid-13th century with inhabited initials showing medical scenes, likely written by and for Dominican monks.
