Legacy of Greek and Roman Medicine


On Tuesday, Classics Society students eagerly engaged in a livestreamed talk delving into the rich legacy of Greek and Roman medicine and science.

Four esteemed scholars led captivating discussions on various facets, including the intriguing absence of a distinct term for “science” in ancient Greek and Latin lexicons, ethical considerations within ancient medical practices, and the societal status of scientists and physicians. Prior to the lecture, students bonded over slices of pizza and friendly rounds of board games -Classics-themed of course!- fostering a convivial atmosphere.

Ranging from Lower IV to Lower VI, all students had a fantastic time!
