This unique Latin reader consists of 67 passages drawn from ancient, medieval, and early modern works on medical subjects. The texts are equipped with introductory comments in English with a visible vocabulary and copious notes designed to aid the students and introduce them to the universality of Latin and the rich range of syntax, vocabulary and styles that characterized the Latin used for almost a millennium and a half after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West and which formed the basis of much of the Latin element absorbed into the modern European languages.
