Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Guy de Chauliac (ca. 1300 - 25 July 1368) was a French physician and surgeon who wrote a large and influential treatise on surgery, titled in Latin Chirurgia Magna. It was translated into many other languages (including English circa 1425) and widely read by physicians in late medieval Europe. Guy de Chauliac was in born in Chaulhac, Loz re, France, into a family of modest means. He began his study of medicine in Toulouse before moving on to study in Montpellier. Montpellier was considered one of the centers of medical knowledge at the time. Around 1325, he became a Master of Medicine and Surgery. It is known that he was in Paris between 1315 and 1320. After receiving his degree, he went to Bologna to study anatomy under Nicola Bertuccio. There is some dispute as to whether or not de Chauliac actually performed surgery.show more
