Girolamo Mercuriale (1530-1606) was a humanist and doctor with a European reputation. In this volume experts from around the world reconstruct his career within its historical and cultural context, and assess his scientific output, which ranged from philological studies to a variety of medical specialties. His work on gymnastics, or physical exercise, for which he is best known, is also examined within the substantially broader range of his medical and cultural interests.
