The Major Surgery of Guy de Chauliac – Review

If you’re into medieval surgery books, then the major surgery of Guy de Chaulic has got to go onto your reading list.

Guy de Chaulic was a 14th century surgeon and he wrote this book (which has been translated to English) after the Black Death had swept through Europe.

The wording is quite flowery at times, and the book is definitely a product of it’s time, but it’s an amazing resource for anyone whose into the medical history of the medieval period.

Cooking Apicius: Roman Recipes for Today – Review

This handy little book is a stroke of genius on the publishers part. A collection

of recipes from Apicius as researched and trialled by the author – who just

happens to be the same as co-authored Apicius – A Critical Review. No

wading through pages of discourse, reviews and examinations of potential

influences – just straight to the recipes.
