Site Information

If you are simply using this website for research, please use the Modern Language Association (MLA) approved format for citing sources from the World Wide Web. Your bibliography should look almost like this:

    Krzywicka, Maggie. "Education." Medieval Medicine. 2000. (Dec. 15, 2000).

The above example follows the following rules of the MLA citation style:

To cite files available on the WWW, give the author's name, last name first (if known); the full title of the work, in quotation marks; the title of the complete work (if applicable), in italics; any version or file numbers; and the date of the document or last revision (if available). Next, list the protocol (e.g., "http") and the full URL, followed by the date of access in parentheses.

E-mail Maggie Krzywicka (maggie at this domain) if you have any further questions or concerns regarding this website. Please write "medieval medicine" in the subject line of your e-mail (this is to prevent accidental deletion of your e-mail as a piece of spam).

Update as of February 15th, 2010:

  • In response to a lot of recent inquiries: this website is a result of an academic independent research conducted as a student at New York University under the supervision of faculty in the History Department at NYU.
  • For more information on the topic, I strongly recommend going directly to the source. While websites about medieval medicine are helpful, please also consider the list of sources compiled during this research.
