New Publication Edited by Dr. Helene Perdicoyanni-Paleologou

Our Metropolis is happy to announce that a member of our staff, Dr. Helene Perdicoyanni-Paleologou is the editor of the recently published book, Anatomy and Surgery from Antiquity to the Renaissance. 

In contrast to the existing literature, which provides manuals and monographs in which anatomy and surgery are studied separately, the present collective volume aims to outline the development of anatomy and surgery from ancient times to the Renaissance. It addresses these texts both synchronically and diachronically, focusing on their concepts, procedures, limits, influences and reciprocal effects.
