Glossulae quatuor magistrorum super chirurgiam Rogerii et Rolandi nunc primum ad fidem codicis Mazarinei edidit. By C. Daremberg.

Naples & Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 1854.

In Roger of Salerno's Practica chirurgiae, which appeared about 1180, end-to-end suture is described, as is the value of mercurial inunction in chronic skin diseases; in his recommendation of seaweed for the treatment of goitre Roger anticipated Coindet (No. 3812). Roland of Parma [Rolando Capelluti or Capezutti] (fl. early 13th century) was a pupil of Roger, and edited his master’s books about a.d. 1230. The work was one of the most important emanating from the School of Salerno. A color facsimile with Italian translation of an illuminated medieval manuscript of Roland’s version of Roger’s work in the Bibliotheca Casanatense Roma was published in Rome, 1927.

Anglo-Norman Medicine I: Roger Frugard's Chirurgia and the Practica Brevis of [Johannes] Platearius. II: Shorter treatises. Edited by Tony Hunt. 2 vols.

Cambridge, England: D. S. Brewer, 19941997.
Vol. 1: First published edition of two 13th century Anglo-Norman medical treatises translated from Latin. Matthaeus Platearius and his brother Johannes were the sons of a female physician from the Salerno school who was married to Johannes Platearius I; it is possible that she was Trotula. The second volume includes all vernacular medical texts contained in Trinity College, Cambridge, MS 0.1.20, presenting a treatise on visiting the sick and a verse translation of the first part of the celebrated gynaecological compilation known as `Trotula', with their Latin originals. To these are added  the Euperiston and the Trinity `Practica'. Hunt's Introduction illustrated characteristic features of the medieval medical compendium through the example of the Speculum medicorum, which was previously unstudied.
