Early Medicine, from the Body to the Stars

Published under the direction of Gérald d’Andiran, with the collaboration of Vincent Barras, Charles Méla, Sylviane Messerli and Elisabeth Macheret-van Daele.


This book invites you to explore the roots of the art of medecine and its development through the ages.

History, science, art, and symbolic and spiritual representations of the world are evoked thanks to a collection of 250 works, several of which have never before been presented to the public.

Over thirty, prestigious institutions from Switzerland and throughout Europe have joied forces with the Martin Bodmer Foundation for an exhibition that spans the centuries from Antiquity to the 1600s from Hippocrates to Hildegard of Bingen, William Harvey and Descartes.
