Title : Women's Medical Practice and Health Care in Medieval Europe [In this essay review, the author surveys work that had been done up through 1988 on different aspects of women's engagements with medicine, both as patients and as practitioners. She argues that the general assumption that "women's health was women's business" is misleading, both because it overestimates the exclusivity of women's practice on other women and because it overlooks abundant evidence that men, too, were involved in women's healthcare. Accompanying this reprint of the original 1989 version are important corrigenda and addenda. Originally published in Signs 14, 2 (1989): 434-473. Repubished in "Sisters and Workers in the Middle Ages." Edited by Judith M. Bennett et al. University of Chicago Press, 1989. Title note supplied by author.].
