Inspiring innovation from tradition

Digital Texts

From the ancient documents in the Ancient Medical Library researchers in the Institute create a unique digital collection of texts: the Art of Healing Collection. Scholars decipher and digitize the texts of the ancient books in the original language, and transform them into machine-readable files stored on computer that will be accessible worldwide in open access via the Internet. Under the several sections (Antiquity, Byzantium, Early Middle Ages, Late Middle Ages, Renaissance) the Website currently offers short samples of the texts in the form of PDF documents. In the future, these will be full texts in HTML format. In all cases, all texts will be offered in open access.
