Ancient Europe

Sanctuary of Asclepius at Epidaurus, Greece

The concept of healing in Europe can be traced back to the Sanctuary of Asclepius at Epidaurus. A sacred place used for ceremonial medical practices as far back as the 2nd millennium BC, the site was also associated with the cult of Apollo in the 8th century BC. It made an invaluable contribution to medical evolution and advancement. Over time, its temples, sporting facilities, banquet halls and theatre shifted in philosophy from prayer to science in the evolution of medical treatment.
