Mat-Med in Transit

Sabrina Minuzzi, previously part of the team of the ERC-funded Oxford-based 15cBOOKTRADE Project led by Cristina Dondi, was awarded in 2019 a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship for her project MAT-MED in Transit. The Transforming Knowledge of Healing Plants (H2020, G.A. 844886, Oct. 2019-Sept. 2021). The acronym MAT-MED stands for materia medica, which is the body of knowledge concerning the medicinal properties of plants, animals and minerals – the so called ‘simples’ – that formed the basis for the preparation of medical remedies.

The new database MatMed-Readers, modelled on MEI, allows for the systematic analysis and recording of the traces that past readers left on printed books concerning materia medica.

At present MatMed-Readers offers the description of a few copies of herbals (mainly), books of secrets and regimina sanitatis printed in Italy.
