Abstract

The emphasis of the volume lies in European early modern times. The spectrum of investigations comes from early cultural aspects until the modern 20th Century. From the Bible to modern medicine and psychiatry, from Europe including places like Korea and Australia, this is an innovative book consisting of research in a subject area that has been given little consideration.
