This workshop examined the impact of the humanist "rediscovery" of the major Greek Hippocratic gynecological texts in the sixteenth century and the increasing masculinization of the field. We began our analysis with gynecological texts written or still actively circulating in the fifteenth century in order to understand the intellectual structures (textual, discursive, and institutional) already in place when the ancient texts were discovered and published. Men were already involved in gynecological practice (both diagnosis and therapy) throughout Europe in the fifteenth century, but gynecology as a distinct field had still not coalesced.
