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…. 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.
