Footnote 74:

Abu Ali Husayn ibn Abdullah ibn Sīnā (980-1037), known to Europeans as Avicenna, commanded a prestige in Islamic medicine comparable to Galen’s in Greco-Roman. Like Galen a philosopher as well as physician, his Canon of Medicine had been considered authoritative since 1100, appearing in at least sixty complete or partial Latin editions between 1500 and 1674. See Siraisi 1987.
