Sample text

The Greeks adopted wine as part of their daily nutritional needs along with bread and meat, believing it strengthened them as is amply described throughout Homer’s Odyssey and Iliad, where wine was not only the medicine most frequently mentioned but characters such as Achilles and Ulysses recognized its ability to sustain the body. Normally, as a medicinal remedy, wine had been prescribed diluted three to five times by water. The Greek physicians were the first to prescribe wine undiluted and it was one of their main medicines.

For old men it is most useful’ (Green 1951, p. 204). He prescribed matured Palernian wine, the Emperor’s wine, because it was made in the vineyards near Rome. Galen’s thoughts and his Galenicals dominated European medicine until the Middle Ages and, especially after he had praised them, mithradatium and other theriacs were also popular up until the eighteenth century. Other pro-wine physicians in Galen’s time included Athenaeus of Attalia who founded the ‘pneumatic’ school of medicine, which stated that wine aroused the pneuma – the vital spirit or breath in a person – and hence was good as a tonic or restorative.

This wine should be neither sweet nor astringent’ (Burke 1984, p. 195). He also insisted that any putrid wound should be washed with wine or that a sponge or a piece of wool soaked in wine be applied to the wound. Galen wrote a complex list of drugs made from vegetables, most mixed with wine, which were called Galenicals. He wrote a catalogue of wines from different areas noting their chemical characteristics and physiological effects. He advocated using wine as a suitable treatment for the diseases of the aged in his book De Sanitate Tuenda (Galen’s Hygiene).
