Abstract:
This is an extensive introduction to the text and transmission of the ancient Latin version of the medical works Therapeutica and On Fevers of the great 6th-century Greek doctor Alexander of Tralles. The Latin Alexander’s importance in medieval medicine in the West is seen in the richness of both mainstream and secondary, excerpting MS traditions. The volume comprises an introduction to Alexander; an outline account of his works in Greek compared with the Latin version; a description of the Latin manuscript copies, and a proposed reconstruction of the genetic relations between them; some preliminary remarks on the Latinity of the Latin Alexander; and a sample edition, with translation, critical apparatus, and extensive notes, of the chapters on coughing at the start of Book 2.
