Interesting monograph dedicated to the Salerno school, first school of physicians founded in Europe in the Middle Ages (around the 19th century) and one of the most important (apogee in the 11th and 12th century).
It is illustrated by the study of the sources of medicine in the ancient Byzantine and Arabic world, and by their spread in the West.
