Chapter Summary

This section of the book Leisure, Pleasure and Healing: Spa Culture and Medicine in Ancient Eastern Mediterranean contains list of Greek words. The book is a study of therapeutic sites in the eastern Mediterranean basin based on hot springs. Such springs, which provide relief for many complaints, were well known during the periods of the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and early Muslim periods. The conceptual basis of the use of therapeutic springs is to be found in the doctrine of Hippocrates, the great physician of ancient Greece, traditionally known in the history of medicine as 'the father of medicine'.

Keywords: Hippocrates; spa culture; therapeutic springs
