This work presents a collection of Greek and Latin inscriptions, papyri and text passages which mention Christian physicians. Christian Schulze points out those historical factors in the Graeco-oriental transfer of medical knowledge which should be given special consideration. Christianity and medicine were closely intertwined in Roman and Greek society. They had enjoyed a peaceful coexistence and had also worked together successfully for centuries in the Roman Empire. In this volume, the author has collected the epigraphical and papyrological traces of many Christian physicians up to the early Middle Ages. He reviews the numerous allusions to Christian medicine in patristic and medical literature. In doing so, he focuses on the members of the medical personnel as well as on the widespread use of medical metaphors in Christian thinking.
