Cairo Genizah : Medical

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Leaves from a treatise on the cure of septic wounds. F. 1v contains the opening of Chapter 4 and mentions Ibn Sīnā (אביצינה), giving the Latin name of the physician, and, thus points to a Latin source for the text. F. 2r continues on the same topic and mentions Albulqašin (אלבוקשין), probably to be identified with the 10th-11th century physician Abū Al-Qāsim Al-Zahrāwī, who authored the medical encyclopaedia Kitāb al-Tasrīf, and Hippocrates (איפוקרט). F. 2v contains the beginning of Chapter 14 and also mentions Ibn Sīnā (אביצינה). The text includes words from a Romance language (possibly Latin) in transliteration.</p>
