We begin with ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian medicine, and the medical revolution of the Ancient Greeks. We discover how unimportant Hippocrates was, that the Oath isn't Hippocratic at all and that the beginnings of medicine stemmed from 40 wild years in Alexandria. Finally, we consider Galen, and the problem for a Christian of practising Pagan medicine.
