Abstract:
In my thesis I examine society, medicine and religion in the work of Aristides, with particular reference to Aristides' Sacred Tales. I demonstrate that Aristides' understanding of his medical condition was inseparable from his religious beliefs and cultic habits, and that this view was encouraged by both the medical establishment and religious institutions.
