Abstract

Abstract

Galen (129-216) has always been a controversial figure even today. This paper examines various features of his writings and seeks to show how they would have appeared to his contemporaries in a competition for patients. Some features were emphasised by Galen himself, others have to be discerned by reading between the lines of his voluminous output, and others by setting him in a context of sophistic performance and debate.
