This book explores the identity of the 'French disease' (or 'Morbus Gallicus') in the German Imperial city of Augsburg between 1495 and 1630. Combing medical, religious, economic, municipal and institutional history this book offers a fascinating insight into how early modern society came to terms with disease both in a practical and theoretical sense.
