9780801889783: Asklepios, Medicine, and the Politics of Healing in Fifth-Century Greece: Between Craft and Cult
Críticas:

Wickkiser covers a huge amount of ground and provides the best synthesis of the current literature on the cult of Asklepios that has been produced.

(Helen King, University of Reading)

Wickkiser, by focusing on a single historical event of some significance, has inserted an intriguing new angle to an old debate... In this respect, the present study provides the basis for further research into the significant questions which it raises.

(Konstantinos Kapparis, Ph.D. Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences)

Elegantly written, and with a sound command of the original Greek, it provides an excellent introduction to the rise of Asclepius' cult in Athens. It also promotes a clear and challenging thesis.

(Vivian Nutton Aestimatio: Critical Reviews in the History of Science)

This book will be very useful to students and scholars (especially chapters four and five) of medical history, as it is a very clear introduction to the subject and somewhat renews our perspective on the origins of the cult of Asclepios in Athens.

(Caroline Petit Social History of Medicine)

Wickkiser freshly appraises our best evidence for the importation of the cult—namely, the Telemachus monument—in order to embed the event in both the space of the city and the local dynamics of power.

(Brooke Holmes Bulletin of the History of Medicine)

I have enjoyed reading this work enormously, and would recommend it to anyone seeking a short introduction to Asklepios, or to anyone teaching a course on ancient medicine or ancient 'religion'.

(Laurence Totelin Medical History)

A fresh and original contribution to the scholarship on Asklepios.
