In this exciting episode, the Doctors dive into the topic of sex (both gender and the activity of physical engagement), ancient ideas relating to health, and consider the issue of purity in certain contexts. A consideration of menstruation is central to understanding how women’s health was conceptualised by the Greek and Roman medical writers, while the advent of Christianity influences new considerations of what it means to be pure. Lean closer and the Doctors will explore these aspects of a vast topic.
