Abstract: This talk will discuss how, in the early modern era, Protestant reformers read the Bible as narrating a religious or sacred history of medicine. It will primarily focus on the founder of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther, with particular attention to his interpretation of what he saw as a biblical history of women's health. (Continuing medical education credit will be available.)
