Description
A brief overview of the theory of Galen’s medicine, which was prevalent in period.  This class started when someone asked why period cordial recipes were what they were – definitely not a modern sipping cordial!  This class will be somewhat informal, more of a conversation than a lecture.  While the instructor is a brewer, she has experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine and homeopathy as well, and will offer her experience in comparative alternative medicines to help shed light on how medieval Europeans might have thought about medicine.
