Long shalt thou live, if these well be done: Food, Drink and Health

Wednesday, October 18, 2023

Bernard Becker Medical Library, Glaser Gallery, 7th floor 660 S. Euclid, St. Louis, MO 63110

You are what you eat! From medieval humoral theory using food to balance one's complexion to American homesteading recipes on making meals that best aid recovery, food has long played a role in maintaining one's health. Join us for a journey through time as we explore the medical uses of food, drink, and diet in our rare book collections, beginning with ancient Greece and medieval Europe through 19th and 20th century America.
