The Liber contra uenena et animalia uenenosa by the Franciscan monk Juan Gil de Zamora (c. 1241-1318) is a literary work on medicine written in 13 th century Castile. The Liber contra uenena fills in a vacuum: that of medical science understood as a part of natural philosophy; it attracted the keen interest of both theologians and preachers, as the content of their libraries demonstrates. The work can be defined as a small medical encyclopaedia against common and deadly poisons and dated between 1289 and 1295, as it is dedicated to Raymond de Geoffroi, who was minister general of the order of St. Francis at the time. © Cahiers de recherches médiévales.
