Review of Healthy Living in Late Renaissance Italy
Choice (2014)
  • Brian Maxson, East Tennessee State University
This work offers an interdisciplinary study of preventative health in 16th and 17th century Italy. Previous studies on the practice and prescription of early modern preventative health are few, and scholars have tended to assume that medical understanding of the body's humors remained relatively static during this period.
