During the Ancient Greek era, doctors gained advanced knowledge of the human body. They learned how organs worked, how to identify diseases, and methods to improve treatments for people who were ill. Discover how these new scientific ideas about health and disease began to replace the traditional belief of gods as healers. This series explores the world of Ancient Greece through the works of playwrights, philosophers, and historians of the time. These works offer a fascinating window into another era. Each page features a quotation that explains a unique aspect of life in Ancient Greece.
