Hungarian Culture Day – Visit our virtual medical history exhibition!

On the occasion of the Hungarian Culture Day (22 January 2023), the ELTE University Library and Archives invites you to visit our virtual medical history exhibition.

The pages of our old books offer an insight into the history of medicine and the secrets of healing in the 16th century.

How were dissections performed in the early modern age? How were the eyeball structures depicted in the 16th century? Where was the first university botanical garden established? These are some of the questions you might discover when you visit our virtual exhibition. We have selected volumes from the University Library's collection from the 16th century to reflect the paradigm shifts on the field of medicine of this period, including botanical volumes, recipe books and anatomical atlases.

Join our virtual journey through time!

More virtual programmes are available here.
