The Disease and Therapy programme at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens presents the diseases - mainly physical and rarely mental – and the cure methods/practices in Egypt, Mesopotamia and the Aegean.

Key facts:

On that aspect, we have the chance to realize the range and the depth of knowledge of people who lived during that era.

Each geographical region provides us with different pieces of information from varying sources– direct or non direct – regarding diseases and their cure.

It is also inevitable for this period, the causes and cure of a disease to be connected with magic/religion.

Isn’t that something – to a lesser extend - that also happens nowadays, at least when it comes to religious beliefs?

After all, the preservation of a good physical and mental health is something that is proven timeless.

All of the above will be analyzed further and in detail in this online course part of the Arts and Culture category.

After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate while acquiring a magnificent one time experience.
