The Getty Museum building recreates an ancient Roman villa on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, where guests can feel that they are visiting the Villa dei Papiri before it was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The climate of southern California has made it possible to plant the gardens with dozens of herbs, flowers, and fruit trees known to the Greeks and Romans. In classical times they were practical as well as beautiful, providing color, perfume, home medicines, and flavorings for food and drink. Martha Breen Bredemeyer, a San Francisco Bay area artist, was inspired to paint two dozen of the garden's herbs. Her watercolor gouaches combine vibrant color with the fragile delicacy of these short-lived plants while her pen-and-ink drawings share their wiry grace. Jeanne D'Andrea discusses twenty-one of the herbs in detail after presenting their place in myth, medicine, and home in the introduction.

When workmen excavating the ruins of Pompeii eagerly gathered the native medicinal plants growing there, Wilhelmina Jashemski discovered that this was another example of the continuity of life in the shadow of Vesuvius. Many of the plants used for herbal medicine around Pompeii today are the same ones that ancient authorities such as Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides recommended for treating the same types of disorders. In this book, Jashemski presents an herbal of thirty-six medicinal plants, most of them known to the ancients and still employed today. She describes each plant's contemporary medicinal uses and compares them to ancient practices as recorded in literary sources. Scientific, English, and Italian names and the plant's mythological associations complete the entries, while elegant, full-page portraits depict each plant visually.

Leben und Schaffen Hildegard von Bingens (1098-1179) üben bis heute eine ungebrochene Faszination aus; Konsequenz im Glauben, Mut und persönliches Engagement machten sie über ihre Zeit hinaus zu einer Identifikationsfigur. Früh trat die in Bermersheim bei Alzey geborene Mystikerin in das Benediktinerstift Disibodenberg an der Nahe ein. Aufgestiegen zur Äbtissin schrieb sie in den Jahren 1141 bis 1151 ihre Visionen und Gespräche mit Christus nieder; es entstanden die Bücher "Wisse die Wege", ein Lehrbuch der christlichen Sittenlehre, und "Über die Schöpfung und Erlösung der Welt". Hildegard von Bingen verfaßte mystisch-visionäre Schriften, war Heilpraktikerin und Naturwissenschaftlerin, Predigerin und Komponistin. Ihre Schriften lösten bereits unter ihren Zeitgenossen ein gewaltiges Echo aus und führten zu einem regen Briefwechsel mit den bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten der damaligen Zeit. Der vorliegende Band versammelt die wichtigsten Schriften der Hildegard von Bingen: "Ursachen und Heilungen", "Das Buch der Physika", "Das Buch Scivias", "Das Buch vom verdienstlichen Leben" und "Des einfältigen Menschen Buch von den göttlichen Werken".

Considerable progress has been made in our healthcare system, in particular with respect to sensitive diagnostic tools, reagents and very effective and precise drugs. On the other hand, high-throughput screening technology can screen vast numbers of compounds against an array of targets in a very short time, and leads thus - tained can be further explored. In developing countries, the exploding population exerts pressure not only on natural resources but also on the human population - self, whose members strive to become successful and advance in society. This leads to increased blood pressure, anxiety, obesity-associated lipid disorders, cardiov- cular diseases and diabetes. Most of these diseases result in disturbed family life, including sexual behaviour. Despite technological developments, herbal drugs still occupy a preferential place in a majority of the population in the Third World and terminal patients in the West. Herbal drugs, in addition to being cost effective and easily accessible, have been used since time immemorial and have passed the test of time without having any side effects. The multitarget effects of herbs (holistic approaches) are the fun- mental basis of their utilization. This approach is already used in traditional systems of medicine like Ayurveda, which has become more popular in the West in recent years. However, the integration of modern science with traditional uses of herbal drugs is of the utmost importance if ones wishes to use ancient knowledge for the betterment of humanity.
