A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)

在現代的西方世界中,宗教和醫學的關係已經漸行漸遠。然而以歷史的角度觀之,兩者卻又處於密不可分、相互牽連彼此的狀態中。宗教和醫學之間有著許多的衝突,但同時兩者之間卻又有高度的合作關係。宗教的觀點使人得以了解健康和治療疾病的方法,而醫療人員一直以來卻待命在醫病的最前線。宗教組織過去常是回應處理醫療重大事件的中心,提供了重要的醫療環境,例如:醫院、及宗教的朝聖地。
  本場會議將著手探討歷史上宗教和醫學的關係,時間與地理脈絡跨及中世紀、文藝復興至現代之世界史文化場域。
   此次會議聚焦於歷史層面的探討,也歡迎各領域對於此議題的研究提出不同的研究方法。
 
[Original CFP]
In the contemporary Western world, religion and medicine are increasingly separated, but through much of history they have been closely interrelated. This relationship has been characterised by some conflict, but also by a great deal of cooperation. Religious perspectives have informed both the understanding of and approaches to health and sickness, whilst religious personnel have frequently been at the forefront of medical provision. Religious organisations were, moreover, often at the heart of the response to medical emergencies, and provided key healing environments, such as hospitals and pilgrimage sites. This conference will explore the relationship between religion and medicine in the historic past, ranging over a long chronological framework and a wide geographical span. The conference focus will be primarily historical, and we welcome contributions which take an interdisciplinary approach to this topic.
Four main themes will provide the focus of the conference. The sub-themes are not prescriptive, but are suggested as potential subjects for consideration:
     1. Healing the Body and Healing the Soul
       ─ Medical traditions: the non-natural environment and the ‘Passions of the Soul’.
       ─ Religious traditions (for example, the Church Fathers, sermons and devotional  
          literature).
     2. The Religious and Medicine
       ─ Medical knowledge and practice of religious personnel, including secular and
          regular clergy.
       ─ Nurses and nursing.
       ─ Medical practitioners, religious authorities and the regulation of medical activity 
          and practice.
     3. Religious Responses
       ─ Religious responses to epidemics, from leprosy to plague to pox and cholera.
       ─ Medical missions in Europe and the wider world.
       ─ Religion, humanitarianism and medical care.
     4. Healing Environments and Religion
       ─ Religious healing/ miracles/ pilgrimage.
       ─ Institutional medical care (including hospitals, dispensaries and convalescent
          homes).
