Madness: Between Medieval Islamic and Modern Perspectives
This podcast was recorded at a conference at St Cross College, University of Oxford, in March 2010. The conference brought together well-established historians of medieval Islamic history and contemporary psychiatrists to consider what 'madness’ is.
The workshop started with the physicians at the court of Saladin (and how they treated depression) and looked at other issues such as medieval hospitals and the mad, mad poets, or love-sickness. Many contemporary Muslim psychiatrists participated as well.
