Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the table of contents of the Synoptic Iatrosophion of the Most Wise Galen. The beginning of the Synoptic Iatrosophion, of the Most Wise Galen is an epitome of the instruction of the Most Wonderful Galen who aimed at writing about the affected parts which are impossible or difficult to treat, in order to make them easy to treat. At the same time he is speaking in a tone intelligible to all, in an abbreviated form, and instructing on the care of the entire body as well as how to soothe the affected parts, which is called help and therapy by the doctors.
