Oxford, University Press, 2016. 275 pp.Softcover, slight foldingmark in frontcover. Else new. The present volume covers novel terminology derived from Hebrew translations of the Hippocratic Aphorisms, one of the most popular medical works prior to the modern era. It is a continuation of the previous two volumes published in this series and aims at mapping the technical medical terminology as it features in medieval Hebrew medical works translated from Arabic and Latin (and exceptionally Greek). The Hebrew translations studied in this volume range from the late twelfth century (Sefer Agur) to the seventeenth century (Joseph Ben Solomon Delmedigo), and were made from the original Greek text (Delmedigo), from Latin translations or adaptations (Sefer Agur, Hillel of Verona, Judah (Astruc) Ben Samuel Shalom), and from Hunayn’s Arabic version (Nathan ha-Me’ati, Moses Ibn Tibbon, and Anonymous. The volume is concluded by indices to the Greek, Arabic and Latin terminology discussed throughout the study.
