This book is the first to examine closely the interaction between Jewish culture, medicine, and science from the late sixteenth to the late eighteenth centuries, Europe`s age of "scientific revolution." Ruderman argues that during this era Jewish culture and society became increasingly aware of medical and scientific advances, and that a new Jewish scientific discourse evolved that had significant repercussions for Jewish religious concerns.
