Practica medicine Arnaldi de Villa noua

Arnaldus de Villa Nova (1235–1311) was an important catalan physician, alchemist and mysitic. He was also a scholastic scholar and the rector of Montpellier University. However, most of his writings were burned by the inquisition and the authenticity of the surviving writings is debatable. They are sometimes attributed to a 15th century person of the same name.
