Historians have longassumed the origin of modern medical practice occurred in
the Fourth Century B.C. HIPPOCRATES is the accepted Father of Medicine.
Students of medical history have been taught that competent medical procedures
\u2014 including anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, surgery, and gynecology \u2014 are
of comparatively recent development. History books disdainfully dismiss the
ancient era prior to Hippocratic Greece. Certainly, every medical textbook
describes it as a medically ignorant and obsolete age.
This TRADITIONAL history of ancient medicine is in error!
The widely-accepted theory developed from the Historical Hypothesis, which
stated authoritatively: ANCIENT GREECE IS THE ORIGIN OF MODERN
CIVILIZATION. All study was based on this premise; history was warped to
cover this structure.
The History of Medicine was written to conform to the fallacious theory!
The average medical history book presents a hollow, empty description of
ancient medicine. The reader is led to believe that the empty incantations of a
primitive, superstitious priesthood were the sum total of medical aid there
Exhaustive research in this century has proved that a CAPABLE medical faculty
was establishedin EGYPT over forty centuries ago! There is no longer any
doubt that the Egyptians and other peoples studied medicine and surgery in
medical history. Working from afaulty historical HYPOTHESIS, historians have
drawn inaccurate conclusions concerning the level of advancement of ancient
medicine. The result is no secular source has grasped the significance behind
understood, this ancient relationship between medicine and the supernatural was
far removed from what, today, is derisively calledwitchcraft.
Considering the supernatural element in the ancient origin of medicine, it is not
surprising to find this subject rather thoroughly dealt with in theBIBLE. Therefore,
the Specific Purposes of this thesis are to show the following points:
That advanced medical practice had its origin in ancient Egypt \u2014 not
That the theory that medicine originated as an \u201cempiric science\u201d after 500
B.C. \u2014 apart from earlier supernatural intervention \u2014 is a modern stylization.
That all ancient history identifies one physician as the initiator of medicine
in the post-diluvian era.
The development of medicine played a vital role in the establishment of
civilization in the post-diluvian era. A survey of the available works on medical
history showed that this important facet of history has been completely
As AMBASSADOR COLLEGE is actively interested in the proper restoration of
history \u2014especia lly of those ages which tend to set the pattern for present
civilization, a study of this subject was believed to be of importance!
medical artifacts has also been discovered! The question was, \u201cDid the same
fault appear in the treatment of medical history?\u201d Is medical history out of date?
If so, an entirely new approach to the History of Medicine must be expressed.
It became evident that modern research techniques have enabled
researchers to make startling advances toward more complete, realistic
comprehension of medical origins. Recent, accurate translations of the medical
medical textbooks for the first time. The work inpaleopathology, pioneered by
Sir Marc Armand Ruffer, has opened a new dimension in understanding the
diseases of ancient peoples. Together with archaeological developments in
India, China, and Latin America, a new, more correct explanation of ancient
The modern treatment of medical history is an attempt to reconstruct the
past apart form God and the supernatural. The result has been a m\u00e9lange of fact
and fancy. To be able to understand the new picture of ancient medicine
projected by modern research and its proper perspective in history, the Bible
which stresses the most up-to-dateresearch, carefully considers the most
ancient secular records, and appeals to theBible as an authority, has not been
attempted before. This thesis is an original work, which potentially may add
understanding to the task of restoring man\u2019s history!
