Its mission is to further the values of Renaissance humanism and the advancement of scientific knowledge as particularly related to the historical and intellectual development of the European Medical Renaissance (1400-1700).
History and Organisation
First established in January 2018 to carry on the scientific legacy of the Italian physician, philosopher, scientist, and inventor Santorio Santori (1561-1636), the CSMBR is currently the most important Italian institution devoted to the study of medical humanities. It is run by an international committee, whose members seat as representatives of three major partner institutions, formally affiliated to the centre:
The centre is an independent research institute open to scholars of any nationality, without discrimination of ethnicity, gender, age, political, religious, or sexual orientation.
The CSMBR neither seeks nor promotes any political goals. Advocacy research, as well as any activity or field of studies directly related to political aims of any nature (religious, social, economic, sexual, etc.), are incompatible with its mission.
