Caption: Pages from 'The Book of Deliverance' (1026) by the Persian physician Avicenna (980-1037). Avicenna is a Latinised form of his full Arabic name Abu-Ali Al-Husain Ibn Abdullah Ibn Sina. Avicenna, who based much of his work on earlier Greek and Roman writers, wrote medical treatises including 'The Canon' and 'The Book of Healing'. 'The Book of Deliverance' concerned psychology. His books were translated into Latin in the 12th century and were the basis of medicine in Europe until the 17th century. Photographed at the Mesrop Mashtots Matenadaran Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, Аrmenia.
