Index of Medieval Medical Images Searchable collection of medieval illustrations (to the year 1500); the thumbnails can be viewed at varying magnifications. There are many more interesting online repositories devoted to the history of medical illustration--both medieval and early modern--including Historical Anatomies on the Web, Anatomia, Seeing is Believing, and Medieval Manuscripts in the National Library of Medicine.

Another excellent post, tj - this collection of "foetus-removal (abortion)" tools is enough to give me nightmares, and I don't even have a uterus.

My jaw dropped when I saw this... as one of the only people working on medieval medicine at my university, I really appreciate any news I can get on the subject. Sadly, many of the go-to resources on the subject are subsciption only...
