Roman Medicus

Kind of Event

Health! This topic has always been one of the most important parts of our life, nobody can get around to dealing with this and the question of the right medicine or treatment method.

In the Roman Empire, medicine did not exist from the start. The knowledge of caring for the injured and sick only developed over time and after the conquest of Greece.

Greek doctors, like Asklepiades, who settled in the Roman territory from 120 BC., brought “modern” medicine to Rome and the number of medical practices increased rapidly due to the success of their treatment methods. The military would also benefit from these successes, because at that time in the army mutual aid to comrades as mentioned in Illias was still the state of affairs. This practice, fortunately, would be replaced by trained military doctors.

Today we welcome a Roman medicus; let us teach you and experience how progressive the medicine of the Roman empire was a good 2000 years ago!
