Leisure, Pleasure and Healing PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Leisure, Pleasure and Healing free pdf The book deals with leisure, pleasure and healing in the thermo-mineral sites in the Levant since the biblical era throughout the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and early Moslem periods. It looks closely at the question of whether the spas, which are models for social interaction between pagans, Christians and Jews, served as sacred cult places or popular sites of healing. The main objectives of the book are as follows: clarifying the leisure-time activities at the spas based on Classical and Rabbinic literature, pilgrims' travel-books, Syriac and Arabic texts, the Geniza fragments, cartographic evidence, and archaeological findings- lightening the daily life, healing cults, medical recommendations and treatments- and examining the social history of medicine at the curative baths.
