Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Maimonides' views on women's healthcare and diseases of genital organs, as collected and expressed in the sections of his work devoted more specifically to women's ailments, that is, his Commentary on the Aphorisms of Hippocrates and the Sixteenth Chapter of his own Aphorisms, known as Medical Aphorisms of Moses, entirely dedicated to women's medical problems. The author likes to stress that this chapter should be considered a work-in-progress that is still in a preliminary stage, within the framework of broader, long-term, ongoing research on Hebrew textual production on women's healthcare.

Keywords: Aphorisms of Hippocrates; female physiology; Hebrew textual production; Islamic tradition; Maimonides; Medical Aphorisms; women's healthcare
