Chapter Summary

This chapter exposes a medical reference from 11th century, containing one of the first French medical universities and having the jewels among the most famous physicians of the Middle Ages, the city of Montpellier as its medical school remained poorly known and studied in detached parts. In the university of the medicine of Montpellier, it exists a rich and detailed literature, but ill-assorted, sometimes difficult to access, and which we could not find anywhere a complete bibliography. Nevertheless, it was necessary to take into account the fact that Montpellier was an important medieval city, a Queen city of Languedoc until 15th century, and that it was a moving plate of the international trade. From a methodological point of view, it is a health history and not only medicine that appears to the reader. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: French medical universities; health history; medicine; Queen city of Languedoc
