This special exhibition, hosted by the Kelsey Museum and the University of Michigan Library, explores the early history of Western medicine as illustrated by a broad selection of archaeological artifacts, papyri, medieval manuscripts, and early printed books. The exhibition is on view from February 10 to April 30, 2017. 

The exhibition will be accompanied by a symposium that will explore the textuality and materiality of medicine before the modern period.

The catalogue is available at the Kelsey Museum gift shop and online.
