Anyone[edit]

Anyone know what the first word of this sentence is referencing?

"Chirugian, and did the first parenteral nutrition of Humans with a silver needle. He was born and died in Seville" Hiberniantears 21:29, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Certainly--it's an old spelling of "surgeon": see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/chirurgeon (English) and http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/chirurgia (Latin). Also, you don't know "Chirugian," but you do know "parenteral"? --Akhenaten0 (talk) 17:05, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Stub and rework[edit]

For background information, please see RFC/U and Cleanup. With 51 edits, User:Jagged 85 is the main contributor to this article by far (2nd: 6 edits, all before Jagged began editing). The issues are a repeat of what had been exemplarily shown here, here, here, here or here. I restored the article to the last pre-Jagged version of 20 August 2007, but removed two first claims which are unreferenced. Categories, interwiki links, templates etc. are kept (while most external links were defunct), but Jagged's information in the infobox, as harmless as it might appear, should be restored only by someone knowledgeable in the subject.

Name[edit]

For the curious, the page was started at Ibn Zuhr probably before it was justified but this cursory ngram seems to back up that it's overtaken Avenzoar, although note that Avenzoar still holds a 2:1 margin over both forms of Ibn(-)Zuhr at Google Scholar. All the same, lead with the shorter form. — LlywelynII 11:04, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Sources for article expansion[edit]

Not an unbiased source, but the "Template:9eb" article in the EB 9th edition (1878) details his influences and legacy w/r/t Western Europe, which should be a section of the final article. — LlywelynII 11:19, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
