We'll discuss a few of the more famous female physicians with a focus on those who studied at the Schola Medica Salernitana. The "Ladies of Salerno" consisted of Trota of Salerno, Abella, Constance Calenda, and Rebecca Guarna. We will include Hildegard of Bingen, Anna Komnene, and others as time allows.
A basic understanding of the humoral theory is recommended but not required.
