Rob Cole, the main character of the renowned novel "The Physician“, grows up in a world of barbers and quacksalvers. Striving to heal the sick and to gather knowledge, his journey leads him away from Europe to the Orient, where he receives insights into ancient medical practices by Arabian scholars. With reference to this riveting story, the special exhibition "The Physician - the Power of Knowledge" provides thrilling insights into the complex and fascinating development of medical progress. Following the footsteps of the “Physician”, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the medical knowledge of various times and cultures by compiling an assortment of exhibits of diverse backgrounds from over 5,000 years and presenting them for the first time in the context of an exhibition.
