Hippocrates

Hippocrates, a Greek physician (circa 460 to 377 B.C.) is traditionally revered as the Father of Medicine. Few details of his life are known, but it seems he was the son of a physician who traveled widely in Greece and Asia Minor, teaching and practicing the art and science of medicine.

The Hippocratic collection of writings is generally attributed to him, but is more likely that it constituted a library of the medical school at Kos where he taught.

 The collection deals with clinical subjects, anatomy, diseases of women and children, treatments through diet and herbs, prognosis, surgery and medical ethics. The latter gave rise to the famous hippocratic oath which is sworn to by modern physicians.

#SS-HYA


[Vatican Museum, Rome]

Asclepios was the Greek god of medicine and healing (called Aesculapius in Rome). He was the son of Apollo and the nymph Coronis according to legend, but most probably a mortal who originally practiced healing in the area of Trikkala on the Thessalian plain of central Greece and came later to be considered a god.

Heís most famous sanctuary was located in Epidaurus. The temples of Asclepios are always associated with sacred springs, whose waters carried the healing powers of the Earth.

 The main attribute of Asclepius is a physician's staff with an Asclepian snake wrapped around it; this is how he was distinguished in the art of healing, and his attribute still survives to this day as the symbol of the modern medical profession.

Shown as a venerable old man with thick and wavy hair and a heavy beard, he wears his himation or cloak in the style worn by learned teachers in the fouth and fifth centuries B.C., leaving most of the breast uncovered.

The cock was also sacred to Asclepius as was the bird sacrificed at his altar. It is said that Hippocrates was a descendant of Asclepios. The top two statues are reproductions of a marble original found in the Temple of Asclepios at Epidauros.

THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH PLAQUE

This Hippocratic Oath Wall Relief shows the famous hippocratic oath developed by Hippocrates in Ancient Greece. The oath reads as follows:

I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepios and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:

To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art - if they desire to learn it - without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else. I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

(Kinda antiquated for a Goddess site, but there you have it.)
