De materia medica. Il Dioscoride di Napoli



Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli - Ms. ex - Vindobonense Greco 1, VI-VII sec. d. C.

COFDIOSCORI 700

Dioscorides, the eminent physician from the 1st century AD, is considered the founding father of pharmacology, as he laid the conceptual and scientific groundwork for pharmacological treatment. He gathered Egyptian, Middle Eastern and Graeco-Roman therapeutic knowledge in a work entitled De materia medica.

De materia medica: this key work in the field of medicine was unrivalled by his contemporaries, given his clear and detailed description of medications, based on a rational method still valid today.

There are numerous versions of Dioscorides' original work. One of the oldest is the Codex Neapolitanus, written in Greek, with 172 richly illuminated folios, illustrating in an "herbal" form the properties and uses of 409 plant species discussed in Dioscorides' work.

In collaboration with the University and National Library of Naples, Aboca is offering an unprecedented publication of this codex, where for the first time the facsimile is accompanied by the complete translation of the Greek text.

The historical and artistic side is flanked by a critical commentary and 243 modern botanical tables. There are 374 entries compiled by specialists, comparing Dioscorides' ideas with today's medical and botanical knowledge. The modernity of Dioscorides' text is also enhanced by an appendix with 700 entries on diseases and the pharmaceuticals to treat them.
