Take a virtual seat at the table as we smell and taste our way through 16th century eye medicine. Clinical herbalist, Rylan Sian of North Wind Apothecary will join us to discuss herbal remedies found in the museum’s oldest text, “Ophthalmodouleia” authored by Georg Bartisch in 1583. Together we will sift through these Renaissance era medicinal recipes and explore ingredients used to treat eye issues.
