Description
This class will examine the anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system from a medieval, Western European perspective. This class will cover a range of gynecological concepts, including but not limited to the four digestions, conception of the fetus, side effects of menstruating, menstruation's connection to diseases and adverse health conditions, and uterine placement and function. Class content will include discussions of genitalia, sex, menstruation, fertility, miscarriage, disease, and death. While modern anatomical images will not* be presented, medieval depictions of anatomy are in scope. All content will be presented from a purely scientific (medievally speaking) perspective, and proper anatomical terms or their medieval equivalent will be used. Attendee discretion is advised. This class will not be recorded.
