Codex Codex entry

A scientist and historian of Persia, one of the ‘fathers of medicine’. He studied from childhood, learning logic, metaphysics and astronomy. He devoted most of his time to medicine and philosophy and even experimented with remedies on his own body. He was always surround with students, with whom he enjoyed debating. He was also a keen observer of the night sky.

During his lifetime he wrote at least 450 works, of which some 240 have survived to this day, including 150 books concerning philosophy and 40 on medicine. The remainder are on astronomy, alchemy, geography and geology, psychology, Islamic theology, logic, mathematics, physics and poetry.

His theories and discoveries fascinated not only scholars of neighbouring countries, but also the whole of Europe. The Czech reform preacher Master Jan Hus also referred to Avicenna's writings.
