  • Title: The "De genecia" Attributed to Constantine the African [the author argues that "De Genecia," the women's medical text attributed by Peter the Deacon to Constantine the African, is in fact a text that begins "De Genitalibus membris" and is a translation of a portion of al-Majusi's medical text known in Latin as the "Pantegni;" the gynecological text "De Passionibus mulierum," a collection of diseases and remedies, was attributed to Constantine but in fact shows no evidence connecting it with his circle at Monte Cassino; the Appendix presents an edition of the Latin medical text, "De Genitalibus membris"].
