Maimonides' Medical Works Online aims to provide critical editions of all surviving medical works by the famous rabbi, philosopher and medical doctor Moses Maimonides (1138-1204).
Born in Muslim Spain, his career took him to Morocco and Egypt, where he became the personal physician to the famous ruler Saladin. His work was well-received both by Muslims and non-Muslims all over the Islamic world. This unique online publication brings together the translations of all Maimonides’ surviving medical works as translated and edited by Gerrit Bos and a host of other experts in the field.
Maimonides' Medical Works Online is of great value to those with an academic interest in Medieval History, Middle Eastern and Jewish History and History of Medicine and Science. It is published on Scholarly Editions, Brill’s bespoke platform for Text Editions. This platform offers many convenient features for working with Text Editions including: side-by-side reading of original and translated texts, easy features for citing and exporting, customizable text scaling, support for right-to-left text scripts and more.
