Medicine and Medical Ethics in Medieval and Early Modern Spain

An Intercultural Approach

תקציר
This volume presents expanded versions of papers read at a binational symposium convened in Jerusalem in December 1992. Organized within the framework of meetings held worldwide in remembrance of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, this conference focused on aspects of the profession and ethics of medicine. The major topics explored at the symposium were the relationships among physicians of different denominations and between them and the authorities; the image and status of the converso physician; questions of medical licensing and compensation; attitudes regarding suffering, pain and the care of infants; and the influence of medieval Jewish and Moslem religious law concepts underlying the care and treatment of patients. Other papers relate to the early modern period and to current problems of medical ethics, illustrating the impact of historical approaches on the development of the discipline of medical ethics today.
