On Friday 26, during our weekly meetings called ‘Laboratorium’, our team had a pleasure to meet, discuss, and collaborate a bit with Prof. Michael Stolberg.*
The main topic of the meeting was the activity of taking notes in the context of early modern medical studies. Responses from Prof. Stolberg not only comprehensively answered questions raised by our researchers, but also have fruitfully driven the discussion towards yet another subjects and ideas. By exchanging views with a world-class expert, we gained a different perspective on the background of a Renaissance physician, as well as learning more about the history of medicine.
We thank Prof. Stolberg for giving us his time and sharing his knowledge. We hope the meeting was mutually enriching and inspiring.
