About the Book

Roger’s name first appeared in writing during the last half of the 12th C, when he was recognized as the premier surgeon in Italy. Since then he has been acknowledged as the leading figure in the rebirth of the art and science of Surgery in western Europe, which had been deprived of it for centuries.


About the Author

Dr. Rosenman is a retired surgeon and Professor of Surgery in San Francico, CA. He has provided English translations of seven of the eight seminal treatises written between 1170 and 1330 AD which reintroduced the art into Europe before the epoch of the Great Plague. With this translation of a treatise by one of three great surgeons of the 16th C, we can see how the art of practical surgery came to be dominated by the barber-surgeons while the academics of medicine and surgery were wasting their energies in battles for turf.
