Claudius Galen (fineartamerica.com)
In Part 2 we move to Rome and meet Galen, the greatest doctor the Empire produced. We then push on into the Christian era to see how healthcare developed alongside the new religion.

I have an opportunity for you to hear a bonus Byzantine Stories episode for free. Just give me a moment of your time.
So, as most of you know, the podcast is now working with Acast. They’re connecting the History of Byzantium with companises whose adverts play at the start of the show.
In order to advertise products that will be of interest to you we’ve set up a listener survey. It’s got about 30 questions and its asking for your demographic information. Its completely anonymous and you won’t have to input your email or anything. It would be really helpful to me if you could take a moment to fill out the survey.
But I know some of you will think – “What do I care? Let other people do that, I can’t be bothered.” Fair enough. What’s in it for you? Well – this is what’s in it for you. I’m currently working on a Byzantine story about Roman medicine. I think its going to turn into a 3 parter. So if I can get 500 listeners to fill out the survey – then you will all get part 1 for free.
So if you’d like to learn more about the terrifying experience of Roman surgery. Then click here and fill out the survey.
Thanks so much for your help.
