Ciarlatani, Mammane, Medici ebrei e Speziali conventuali nella Roma barocca (Title not available)
L. Colapinto , A. Annetta
In the seventeenth century science followed new paths of knowledge but contradictions remained, particularly in a city like Rome. In medicine they were manifested in the continuation and even the consolidation of the existence of "professional" charlatans, who often banded together to swindle and cheat on an organised basis.
In the cultural and social climate of Rome during that time, the world of cures remained bound up with a universe of popular beliefs, superstitions and customs.
It was a universe made up of contradictions, disputes and professional and institutional conflict. Colapinto and Annetta paint a colourful and intriguing portrait of this world, based on professional research.
Leonardo Colapinto is the Presidente Emeritus and member of the Nobile Collegio Chimico Farmaceutico Romano, and a lecturer in the History of Medicine at La Sapienza University in Rome.
Antonino Annetta, the owner of a pharmacy in Rome and a specialist in pharmacology, is also a member of the Nobile Collegio and the Accademia Romana di Storia della Farmacia.
