It is concerned with recipe collections, perhaps the least studied of all medical documents, and includes - chants, charms and prayers, as well as herbal remedies for a variety of ailments.' 'Popular Medicinesucceeds in two ways: the quality of its philological scholarship confirms the growing academic respectability of an interest in medical history, and the abundance of primary material made available for the first time in print offers a way of reconciling opposing views on medieval English medicine.
