Caption

Physician with a scroll, 12th-century artwork. The text on the scroll is Latin. The physician is making a two-fingered gesture with his left hand. Gestures in medieval manuscripts have a range of meanings. This one is characteristic of making an pledge such as the Hippocratic Oath. This artwork was produced in Liege (southern Netherlands) in around 1175.
