Guest: Meg Frost, Physiological Sciences Librarian, Harold B. Lee Library, BYU For this month’s installment of From the Vaults, we’ve taken a little field trip across the BYU campus to travel back in time to the 16th Century, when visiting the doctor was not a sterile and sanitized experience. We’re here, in the lobby of the Harold B Lee Library, where, behind a tall black curtain just inside the main entrance, the world of Renaissance Medicine comes alive. The exhibit is called Curious Remedies, and in it we’re introduced to mysterious powders, surgical tools that look like instruments of torture, fantastic masks and lots of blood—and leeches.
