Society, Medicine and Religion in the Sacred Tales of Aelius Aristides
Aelius Aristides was a devout worshipper of Asclepius while at the same time being a patient of some of the most distinguished physicians of his day. This title offers a textual analysis of the "Sacred Tales" in the context of the so-called Second Sophistic; medicine and the medical use of dream interpretation; and religion.
