Latin MS 500

We have just added to our image collections images from Latin MS 500. This interesting medieval medical manuscript dates from 1497 and was previously owned by Thomas Windsor, who gifted the manuscript to the Manchester Medical Society.

This manuscript contains drawings of various parts of the body, including a drawing of the human body, showing the position of the organs (f.13r) and  a diagram to illustrate the relationship between understanding, memory, imagination and the five senses (f. 20v).
