John the Physician's therapeutics: A medical handbook in vernacular Greek, translated with an introduction by Barbara Zipser.

Leiden: Brill, 2009.

First printed edition of the Therapeutics of John the Physician is a medical handbook from the thirteenth century, holding important new evidence on medicine as craft in the Byzantine world. Of particular interest is a vernacular version of the text, which also contains a commentary. Here, an unknown reviser vividly describes cases and medical procedures, a type of knowledge rarely encountered in scholarly texts.
