AbstractThis year Medica (the Society for the Study of Healing in the Middle Ages) will be sponsoring a session and a round table related to the movement and transfer of medical knowledge between and across different types of boundaries: geographical, societal, professional, religious, linguistic, material, chronological, etc. These sessions seek to examine various issues related to itineraries of medical knowledge, intended and unintended audiences, and the early modern reuse of medical manuscripts.
