Abstract

This article discusses a new course on Galen and ancient medicine () developed by the Classics department of the Gemeentelijk Gymnasium Hilversum and the Galen research group of Utrecht University in the period of 2017-2021. First, the motivation behind this joint venture is explained in terms of the neglect so far suffered by Galen in Dutch secondary education, the suitability of his writings for students of Greek, particularly those of the fifth form, and its potential as a vehicle for interdisciplinary teaching. Next, the contents and structure of the course, in combination with some suggestions for its use are expounded. Finally, the course is evaluated in light of the experiences of and evaluations by teachers and students who have worked with the course.
