Hippocrates of Kos and Hippocratic oath.
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath taken by phycisians, from the ancient times. It is one of the most widely known of Greek medical texts. In its original form, it requires a new physician to swear, by the healing gods Apollo, Asclepius and others, to hold ethical standards.
Hippocrates is often called the father of medicine in Western civilazation. The original oath was written in Greek,and is included in the Hippocratic corpus, a collection of around 60 early Ancient Greek medical works associated with the physician Hippocrates and his teachings. The entire Hippocratic Corpus was first printed as a unit in 1525 in latin. This edition was edited by Fabius Calvus in Rome. Another edition was next year, from the in Vevice (1526). A significant edition was that of Emile Littre, with French translation of the Hippocratic Corpus.
