Can No Physician Be Found?

The Influence of Religion on Medical Pluralism in Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Israel
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0248-4
Can No Physician be Found analyzes how religion, as an expression of a universal order, is applied to the medical practices in the cultures of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Israel. The comparative approach sheds light on how religious concepts shaped not only the particular medical identity of each society, but also how they can simultaneously participate in a broader medical culture spanning the ancient Near East.
