Description
From Egyptian priestess-healers in the temples of Isis to the hedge-witches and herbalists of medieval Europe, from the midwives and nurses of later centuries to the physicians, researchers, and alternative practitioners of today, women have always been healers—even when they have, at various times, been persecuted for their practice. This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the history of women healers from earliest times, and profiles women healers from all traditions, from Hildegard of Bingen, Florence Nightingale, and Mary Baker Eddy to Trotula of Salerno, who wrote gynecological and obstetrical texts in 13th-century Italy, and Mama Lola, still practicing as a respected healing priestess in the Haitian Voodoo tradition.
