Conference Venue: Institute of Historical Research, Bloomsbury, London.
Conference Dates: 13-14 September 2013
This conference seeks to bring together scholars working on topics related to the role played by the six Non-Naturals in health maintenance in the late-medieval and early modern period. It is well-known that health was thought to depend on the regulation of the six key factors affecting body functions: the air one breathes, sleep, food and drink, evacuations, movement and emotions.
