Lombard connections[edit]

The Lombard connections that were suggested in this article are not important. There was no Lombard medical tradition, no Lombard tradition of preserving manuscripts in general, few Lombard cultural connections with Byzantium and Arabic Sicily. I added two first references, which provide some basic orientation. --Wetman 20:47, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

The connection was solely with the stability provided by the Lombard government, but even that implication was barely detectable. The comment merely defined the time period by the political authority. Furthermore, Alfanus was a Lombard and his influence was important. Srnec 05:20, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Some general comments[edit]

Why isn't this article titled "Salerno Medical School"? Is Schola Medica Salernitana Latin? It would be good if the article gave some general idea of when the school was important; I am under the impression that the Salerno Medical School was the most important medical school for about 400 years, but I'm not sure when. I know that today there is a botanical garden in Salerno that is a remnant of the medieval medical school, but what other evidence of it remains today? I may dig up some photos of that garden to post on the site... 18:07, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Entering Salerno Medical School or Medical School of Salerno bring the Wikipedia reader to this article. --Wetman 23:24, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Comment from wfm495[edit]

I disagree. I think we should use the institute's proper name, as that is how it is known to scholars. I have needed to refer to this article from mine on Dr John Ordronaux (in prep.) but felt that I had to refer to the article in Wikipedia, Italy, as being more accurate and complete. Why dumb down?
