â??Managing Health in the Medieval Household: The Illustrated Manuscripts of the RÃ©gime du Corpsâ??
Jennifer Borland, Assistant Professor of Art History at Oklahoma State University, will explore the images found in copies of the RÃ©gime du corps, a late medieval health guide. These luxuriously-decorated books, likely intended for use by noblewomen managing their households, were apparently designed to move medical knowledge from the university into the home. As such, they alter how we might understand women's roles in late medieval healthcare.
Come learn more about the Middle Ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.
