About this record

Content

Arabic version of Book Three of Galen's (جالينوس) De methodo medendi (Θεραπευτικὴ μέθοδος; حيلة البروء). The Arabic translation from the Greek was made by Ḥubaysh ibn al-Ḥasan (حبيش بن الحسن known as Ḥubaysh al-A‘sam [حبيش الأعسم]; AD 9th century), and partially revised by his uncle, Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq al-‘Ibādī (حنين بن إسحق العبادي), who had previously translated the work from Greek into Syriac.

جالينوس في حيلة البروء

إنّ الاستدلال إنّما يخرج به معرفة ما ينبغي أنْ

Ends (f. 64v, lines 9-13):

... فإنّي أحسب أنّ هذا موضعًا

ينبغي لي أنْ أقطع فيه هذه المقالة الثالثة وآخذ في

المقالة الرابعة في الأمراض التي تكون في أكثر

الأمر مع القروح وأضيف إلأيها ذكر مداواة

أسبابها المتقادمة (؟)
