Conserving Health in Early Modern Culture : Bodies and Environments in Italy and England

Did early modern people care about their health? And what did it mean to lead a healthy life in Italy and England? Through a range of textual evidence, images and material artefacts Conserving health in early modern culture documents the profound impact which ideas about healthy living had on daily practices as well as on intellectual life and the material world in this period. In both countries staying healthy was understood as depending on the careful management of the six 'Non-Naturals': the air one breathed, food and drink, excretions, sleep, exercise and repose, and the 'passions of the soul'. To a close scrutiny, however, models of prevention differed considerably in Italy and England, reflecting country-specific cultural, political and medical contexts and different confessional backgrounds.

Food The Great Challenge
Food The Great Challenge Sented by Shon

Health and healthy food have now become a major challenge, as the food industry puts its economic benefits before the benefits that food can provide. We live in a time of haste, in which processed foods are practically most of the food we can find on supermarket shelves, thus relegating unprocessed, authentic foods to hard-to-get items and often over-priced ones.

Fast Favorites Under Pressure

Fast Favorites Under Pressure by Blue Jean Chef Meredith Laurence is written with the smaller household in mind. These days, so many pressure cooker recipes are written for bigger pressure cookers and designed to serve 6 to 8 people.

Somalia (Cold War)
Somalia (Cold War) Sented by Paul

It is 25 years since the end of the Cold War, now a generation old. It began over 75 years ago, in 1944-long before the last shots of the Second World War had echoed across the wastelands of Eastern Europe-with the brutal Greek Civil War. The battle lines are no longer drawn, but they linger on, unwittingly or not, in conflict zones such as Iraq, Somalia and Ukraine. In an era of mass-produced AK-47s and ICBMs, one such flashpoint was, and is, the Horn of Africa...

How to squeeze a lemon
How to squeeze a lemon Sented by Paul

It’s not unusual to hear the word geek used in the halls or around the table at Fine Cooking: It’s a term of endearment. We like the science behind cooking—the more we know about why things work the way they do, the more we have to share with you, from why a batch of whipped cream will go from light and fluffy to grainy and unusable in seconds (see page 119 for the solution to that one) to how to actually squeeze a lemon so that it won’t squirt you in the eye in the process (find the answer to that one on page 47)—the more you’ll learn.
