On the Meaning of Two Medieval Irish Medical Terms: derg dásachtach and rúad (fh)rasach
Hayden, Deborah
This contribution seeks to shed light on the meaning of two terms relating to medical knowledge in early Ireland, namely derg da´sachtach and ru´ad (fh)rasach. It is argued that these terms have not been satisfactorily translated either in published dictionaries or in medieval medical sources edited to date, and several sources are drawn upon to provide additional evidence for their use and meaning in a medical context.
