Texte intégral

1This article analyzes the main aspects of Muslim medical learning in the Deccan, India, where many Persian medical treatises were written prior to the 19th century. The development of medical learning under the Deccan Sultanates is examined, especially under the Quṭb Šāh of Golconda and Hyderabad (16th and 17th centuries) who employed several physicians of Iranian origin at their court. The article also describes the important medical reforms enacted during the 20th century, under the last Niẓāms and, later, after Indian independence, that reshaped the scientific identity of yūnānī learning and institutions by modernizing many of traditional features.
