Women Healers: Portraits of Herbalists, Physicians, and Midwives - Brooke, Elisabeth

Offering a provocative reconstruction of the history of women's healing practices, Brooke argues that the medieval image of the healer as witch was deliberately constructed by Church officials to discredit women's powers. In its place she provides a more accurate picture of these innovative, compassionate, and capable practitioners.
