Medicine in the Talmud
Registration open to Cornell alumni and family.

Medicine is not the first topic that one expects to encounter when studying Talmud, the vast collection of laws and narratives produced by the rabbis of late antique Persia in the third through sixth century C.E. In this talk, Professor Jason Mokhtarian will show how this corpus is in fact the largest collection of medical remedies in ancient Judaism, and how the rabbis adapted and adopted the medical knowledge of their time to help their community stay healthy. The talk is based on the author's recently published book by University of California Press, "Medicine in the Talmud: Natural and Supernatural Therapies between Magic and Science."
