MIRACLES, MAGIC, AND MEDICINE is a study of medical frustration—the inability of the physician to dispense medicine that worked. Hundreds of biological medications were prescribed but no more than five or six actually improved the patient’s condition.As a result, patients turned to miracles, magicians, witch doctors, astrology, and the church. For almost a thousand years, the church’s answer to disease was prayer. Spirits, angels, and demons lurked everywhere.The Antichrist practiced witchcraft and sorcery, and soothsayers predicted the future. Flagellation was practiced, and magician with their smoke and mirrors, held sway.Among the Romans, cabbage was the cure for all disorders, and eating the herb dittany could extract an arrow. It was only with the age of science that effective medications were discovered.Those practicing witchcraft were accused of intimately consorting with the devil and his demons, even having sex with them.
