Description

Uroscopy was the primary means of diagnosing illness in the late Middle Ages, and was for that reason a type of knowledge that circulated widely, at all levels of expertise. Despite its necessity to and influence on medieval medical practice, English uroscopy is still very much understudied in medieval scholarship.

This panel showcases the scholarship being undertaken in this burgeoning field. Papers given here should be of interest to scholars of medical history, intellectual history, the history of the English language, vernacularization, and text editing.
