Ars uero longa

In 2017, I wrote an essay about a manuscript comment on the Aphorisms of Hippocrates by the 15th-century physcian Ugo Benzi (also known as Hugo of Sienna). This paper, under the direction of Prof. Faith Wallis at McGill University’s Department of History and Classical studies, analyzes the incipit of the manuscript and the insights it provides on Ugo’s conception of medicine and the role of the physician.

This essay went on to win an award for medical student essays on a topic within the Humanities at McGill University. I look forward to eventually doing more research in this area!
