This collection provides an exploration of the changes and developments in medicine as practised in Ireland and by Irish physicians studying and working abroad during the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries. Bringing together research undertaken into the neglected area of early Irish medical and social history across a variety of disciplines, including history of medicine, Spanish and Portuguese studies, Irish, and French history, it builds upon ground-breaking work recently published by several of the contributors, thereby augmenting our understanding of the role of medicine within early modern Irish society and its broader scientific and intellectual networks.
