[6 pages of medical prescriptions in the Glagolitic Psalter 3/N of the Sinai Closter]
Between the pages 141 und 142 of the Sinai Glagolitic Psalter 3/N there are three sheets of smaller size, containing twenty-two medical prescriptions (Folio 141 a-c). The order of prescriptions is different to the classifications of the famous ancient medical authors. Apart from general prescriptions, the text is also containing three prescriptions for women, children and horses' disease. Mediterranean plants, animal products, one sort of magic and minerals are listed as remedies. There is no exact information as to dose and way of preparing. Following linguistical characteristics, the text can be dated between beginning of the 12th and beginning of the 13th century. Contents are a philological analysis of the text, and a comparison of ancient medical and botanical texts.
