History of Medicine
From 9/2013 – 7/2014:

Monica Green’s project surveys over five hundred Latin medical books from the late eleventh to early thirteenth centuries, many of which brought new texts and concepts into Europe from the Islamic world. For the first time, Europe shared a medical language and practices to which all Christians, Muslims, and Jews could lay claim.
