Remote Amazonian Healers compile a 500-page traditional medicine encyclopedia Before the advent of written language, a tribe’s knowledge had to be passed down orally for the continuation of information. An elder was considered an encyclopedia of remedies, for the body, mind and soul. Midwives kept detailed mental histories of the complete lineage of every person in the village. Births and deaths were a time of remembering these lineages, which remained intact through the telling of the members’ life stories. To remember was to speak. When remote tribes make contact with outsiders, the oral traditions begin to degrade. That’s why in 2012, Acaté and Matsés elders developed a three-point plan of action to preserve and transmit their self-sufficiency and the knowledge of their ancestors. Acaté is an organization, whose field projects “operate at the cutting edge of conservation through an unparalleled integration of culture, health, and ecology” into their mission. From Acaté: The Matsés, or Jaguar People, inhabit some of the most remote rainforests in the world.

Tractatus de Herbis, a medieval medicinal plant guide - Aleph The Tractatus de Herbis manuscript is a botanical album made around the year 1440 in Lombardy, Italy. It was created to help apothecaries and physicists with different linguistic skills to identify plants in their daily trade. The drawings, made with simplicity and looseness, sometimes take up an entire page and reveal the keys of the Mediterranean pharmacopeia of the Middle Ages. Although this particular book, known also as Sloan 4016 (its name in the British Library’s catalogue), is traditionally identified as a copy of Manfredus’ famous medicinal plant treatise, which itself was a version of the code known as Egerton 747, does not contain any of the original writing, only its images. The main question raised by this manifest is why its author decided to abandon Tractatus’ original text and instead gave birth to a new genre.
