520    The period from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment 
       constitutes a vital phase in the history of European 
       medicine. Elements of continuity with the classical and 
       medieval past are evident in the persistence of a humoral-
       based view of the body and the treatment of illness. At 
       the same time, new theories of the body emerged in the 
       seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to challenge 
       established ideas in medical circles. In recent years, 
       scholars have explored this terrain with increasingly 
       fascinating results, often revising our previous 
       understanding of issues relating to the way in which early
       modern Europeans discussed the body, health and disease. 
       In order to understand these and related processes, 
       historians are increasingly aware of the way in which 
       every aspect of medical care and provision in early modern
       Europe was shaped by the social, religious, political and 
       cultural concerns of the age. This volume contains a 
       comprehensive selection of classical writing and up-to-
       date research in the field as well as extracts from 
       contemporary sources, providing vivid and detailed 
       examples of some of the key aspects of medical thought and
       practice in the period. These are arranged by themes and 
       so complement the companion volume of essays in The 
       Healing Arts: Health, Disease and Society in Europe, 1500-
       1800. They are also accompanied by brief, scholarly 
       introductions to ensure that they are readily accessible 
       to both the specialist and the general reader.
