A collection of over 100 Irish language medical manuscripts, copied between roughly 1400 and 1700, contain texts on topics ranging from anatomy and pathology to health regimen and herbalism. Most of these manuscripts, now preserved in libraries across Ireland and further afield, were compiled as reference handbooks for practising physicians in Ireland and Gaelic-speaking Scotland.
