Description

Medicines from the Bible

Roots, Herbs & woods & Oils

By Dr Marinus de Waal

Paperback: 116 pages

Dr Marinus de Waal, Dutch scholar and professor of Comparative Religion, was also well-known for his interest in herbs—much of his research in herbology forms the basis of what we know today about herbs. In searching for the basis of this knowledge, Marinus de Waal takes us on an herbal exploration through the Bible, showing us how the herbs and ancient methods of healing are still in practice today.

The author discusses the role of the physician and apothecary in biblical Hebrew society. He cites the biblical references for the herbs used for various illnesses and disorders, along with the outward appearance, medicinal working and methods of use for each plant.

This work is divided into sections describing roots, woods, barks, herbs, flowers, fruits, seeds, fibers, as well as honey, carmine, and coral. An index is supplied for easy reference. This translation from the 19th-century Dutch text is a welcome addition to a library of classic reference books. A valuable work for people interested in herbs and holistic healing, and for students of biblical lore.
