Casebooks Project

The Casebooks Project makes the medical records of Simon Forman and Richard Napier, two of England’s most popular seventeenth century astrologers, available online at http://www.magicandmedicine.hps.cam.a…. Researchers at the University of Cambridge are funded by the Wellcome Trust to make these documents, held in the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, publicly available. These records provide a unique view of the lives of ordinary – and extraordinary – people four centuries ago. This is one of the most extensive surviving sets of medical records in history.
