Iatrosophikon: Folklore Remedies From a Cyprus Monastery - Original Text and Parallel Translation of Codex Machairas A. 18

By Priest-Monk Metrophanes (1790-1867)

Nicosia: Leventis Foundation, 2015. Bilingual (Greek-English) edition. Edited by A. Demetriades. Includes the original text in Greek, translation and comments in English, as well as an Appendix on plant identification. Hard cover, 28 cm, 656 pp., ill.; net weight 1510 gr. ISBN: 9789963732159. The Iatrosophikon (Book of medical wisdoms), or Codex Machairas A.18, is a collection of folk recipes and treatments that was compiled in the 19th century in a Cyprus monastery. It is the most important and voluminous piece of work of its kind that survives today on the Eastern Mediterranean Island, in the form of its original manuscript, and is kept in the library of the Machairas Monastery, where its author Philotheos lived and served as a healer monk. It is a unique piece of work that provides insight both into the spectrum of diseases afflicting the population in that era and the means available for their treatment. It also provides insight into the health services of the time and the role of the Greek Orthodox Church in the then Ottoman-ruled Island. Handwritten in the Cypriot dialect, through the medium of folklore healing, Codex Machairas A.18 makes as such a significant contribution to both the history and the historiography of 19th century medicine. . . ================================================ IMPORTANT: The shipping cost in not included in the price.

Cyprus and Thalassaemia

By Minas G. Hadjiminas

Nicosia, 2008. In English. Hard cover + dust jacket, 25 cm, 364 pp.; net weight 975 gr. ISBN: 9789963881710. The continuing attraction of thalassaemia is due to the fact that it contains a broad spectrum of scientific areas, from molecular biology and genetics to clinical medicine. Thalassaemia disorders pose serious public health problems met in every country of this world. Parts of this book have been rewritten. It was considered necessary to carry out these adjustments to bring out certain data up to date. The addition of a new chapter (Appendix I) gives more inside information about a continuous threat to a thalassaemic’s well-being: with better understanding of the pathophysiology of these disorders, more rational approaches to prevention and treatment have been developed. Appendix II was written in order to give Cypriots the evidence available that would inform them about their ancestors and their genetic background. . . ============================================================== IMPORTANT: The price does NOT include the shipping cost which depends on actual weight and destination.

 Tuberculosis in Cyprus through the centuries

Tuberculosis in Cyprus through the centuries

By Michael Voniatis

In English. Soft cover, 24 cm, 152 pp. ISBN: 9789925557042. "Dr Voniatis takes us through the establishment of the Cyprus Anti-Tuberculosis League in 1936 that managed the construction of sanatoria and dispensaries, and contributed essential epidemiological information through landmark studies. These not only allowed clarity about the burden of disease in the 1930’s but also the conclusion that poor social economic conditions and a variety of what we would call today "social determinants of health" were nurturing the epidemic. It was a realisation that more vulnerable people existed and that efforts should be focused on these high-risk populations. A very inspiring section of the book presents the heroes of Cyprus in the fight against TB during the last century. These are remarkable individuals, physicians and nurses who devoted their existence to the fight against TB and this book by Dr Voniatis rightly celebrates them to inspire new generations. Some of these heroes led the historical sanatoria in Cyprus, the history of which is detailed in the section devoted to institutions that were the key to treatment of TB for a good part of the last century. As a reminder of the suffering TB has imposed on humankind for centuries, Dr Voniatis recounts stories of real people - not just statistical numbers - who were affected by, and died from, TB. He tells us of the terrible stigma that was dominant at the time with people buried in the sanatorium cemetery because "their relatives refused to receive the dead for burial". He tells us of a small 3 year old child, Titos, whose last name remains anonymous at his burial site most likely because this would have stigmatized his parents."  -  From the Preface by Dr. Mario Raviglione, Director Global TB Programme, World Health Organization. . . ================================================================== IMPORTANT : The shipping cost in not included in the price.

History of Anaesthesia VII - Proceedings of the 7th International Symposium on the History of Anaesthesia

By Helen Askitopoulou, Kathryn E. McGoldrick, Rob N. Westhorpe, David J. Wilkinson (eds.)

In english. Soft cover, 24 cm, 608 pp. The "History of Anaesthesia VII" is the seventh volume of its kind following a series of very successful publications of the International Symposia on the History of Anaesthesia organised for the first time in 1982 in Rotterdam, and since then every four to five years in different parts of the world. These Symposia discuss evidence about past initiatives and foster research about how earlier scientists thought and worked. The present volume contains the Proceedings of the 7th Symposium held in Herakleion, Greece in 2009. It is a collection of essays related to the history of anaesthesia, from individual contributors and not a narrative account of the evolution of anaesthesia as such. The historical evolution of analgesia and anaesthesia from empiricism and experimentation to its impressive present-day development, from the first desperate attempts of man to relieve the pain of trauma and disease, back to the roots of contemporary anaesthesia – one and half centuries ago – is fascinating. The long journey – from the beginnings of recorded history to the last decades – follows the transition and transformation of the history of medicine, which replaced theocratic dogmas and philosophical speculations with rational scientific thought. This diachronic dimension of history, which highlights the process of how the discipline of anaesthesiology reached its current scientific significance, is also expressed in the Proceedings.
