John Shaw Billings History of Medicine Society Talk Spotlights the History of the First English Translation of the Ebers Papyrus
IU School of Medicine Mar 06, 2023
In this talk, Hartsock and Halverson examined the convoluted and dramatic history of the Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest and most complete contemporary perspectives on ancient Egyptian healing practices. They also discussed its “rediscovery” by Edwin Smith and the dramatic societal- and personal-scale forces that thwarted Dr. Carl H. von Klein and Edith Zitelmann's efforts to translate it.
