Thoughts on a neglected French medieval surgeon: Henri de Mondeville (ca. 1260–1320)

Thoughts on a neglected French medieval surgeon: Henri de Mondeville (ca. 1260–1320) Western surgical history has very seldom neglected to mention an original surgeon who made a significant number of contributions to anatomy and surgery at the time when surgery was still in its infancy and anatomy was bogged down by ignorance under the excessive authority of Galenus. Henri de Mondeville's manuscript, which will be presented in this article, is based on a text written from 1306 to 1320 and kept in the Manuscript section of the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris: MS French 2030. The original manuscript was written in Latin and translated into French by E. Nicaise in 1893. The complete German translation of the manuscript was published for the first time by Dr. Pagel in 1893 in Berlin; he had discovered the manuscript in 1892.
