This fascinating history shows how theories of health and disease evolved in the interplay of Western, Byzantine, and Arabic medicines and the relationship with the natural world. AMERICAN HERB ASSOCIATION QUARTERLY
This collection is [...] extremely welcome, not only in that it fills what might be a rather obvious gap in the literature, but also for bringing to the task some of the biggest names in medieval medicine. I recommend the collection as a whole not only to medievalists (both early and late), but to anyone who may believe that the classical legacy was neglected or unknown until humanists rediscovered it, and to all those interested in plant-based medicine. MEDICAL HISTORY
[A] fascinating collection. [...] On many different levels it opens up a new world of the association of plants to medicine. BRITISH SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE on-line review
