    History. The word herbal is derived from the mediaeval Latin liber herbalis ("book of herbs"): [2] it is sometimes used in contrast to the word florilegium, which is a treatise on flowers [10] with emphasis on their beauty and enjoyment rather than the herbal emphasis on their utility. [11] Much of the information found in printed herbals arose out of traditional medicine and herbal . By looking at works as diverse as herbals, jewellery, surgery manuals, lay health guides, cinquecento paintings, manuscripts of Pliny's Natural History, and Leonardo's notebooks, Visualizing Medieval Medicine and Natural History, addresses fundamental questions about the interplay of art and science from the thirteenth to the mid.

    Herbals, depicting plants used for healing and those with magical properties, were most often based on the works of the ancient writers, Dioscurides, Apuleius Platonicus, and Pliny the Elder. Preserved in medieval manuscripts, they emerged as a popular category of early printed book. Hildegard’s sources are not known, but it is likely that she used medieval herbals and older texts by Pliny, Galen, Soranus, and St. Isidore of Seville, augmenting published information about illnesses and treatments with local folk- and medical lore, observation, and experimentation.

    Herbal medicine had been used for thousands of years to treat different kinds of diseases and ailments. The written records of the use of herbs date back to over 4, B.C where people would use different types of plants to heal themselves. The ancient Egyptians, Indians, Chinese and Sumerians have ancient records of such studies in our history. Table of Contents. Contents: Introduction, John M.
