New exhibit: Medieval Medical Illustrations

View the latest panel exhibit in the library’s Linder Lounge: Though a Mirror Darkly: The Art of Medieval Medical Illustrations.

The artists and draftsmen of medical books in the Middle Ages appreciated just as much as we do today the value of pictures in the conveying of certain kinds of information. Pictures could be used to illustrate case histories, to demonstrate techniques, to make instruments for diagnosis and prognosis, to reveal structures and functions within the body and to depict the substances needed to make medicine.
