Tacuinum Sanitatis – Middeleeuwse gezondheidsleer


Taqwīm as‑Siḥḥa (تقويم الصحة Maintenance of Health) is originally an eleventh-century Arab medical treatise by Ibn Butlan of Baghdad.[1] In the West, the work is known by the Latinized name taken by its translations: Tacuinum (sometimes Taccuinum) Sanitatis. It is a medieval handbook mainly on health, aimed at a cultured lay audience, the text exists in several variant Latin versions, the manuscripts of which are characteristically so profusely illustrated that one student called the Tacuinum “a [300] picture book”, only “nominally a medical text”
