MatMed-Readers

The acronym MatMed stands for Materia Medica, which is the body of knowledge concerning the medicinal properties principally of plants, but also of animals and minerals – the so called ‘simples’ – that formed the matter for making medical remedies. MatMed-Readers offers a systematic analysis of the traces that readers left on printed herbals (mainly), books of secrets and regimina sanitatis.
