Jacalyn Duffin, M.D. (Toronto 1974), FRCP(C) (1979), Ph.D. (Sorbonne 1985), is the Hannah Chair of the History of Medicine at Queen's University in Kingston where she has taught in medicine, philosophy, history, and law for more than twenty years. A practicing hematologist and historian, she has served as President of both the American Association for the History of Medicine and the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine and is a member of the Royal Society of Canada. She is the author of seven books and many research articles, most recently Medical Miracles: Doctors, Saints, and Healing, 1588-1999.
Medical Saints is a thoroughly interesting and dynamic study * Christopher D. L. Johnson, Religion * Jacalyn Duffin approaches the subject of Catholic miracle claims from the unique vantage of a medical doctor with a specialty in hematology as well as a historian of medicine. Medical Saints builds upon DUffin's earlier book, Medical Miracles: Doctors, Saints, and Healing, 1588-1999, Oxford University Press, 2009. Both books are fascinating, engagingly written accounts. Although not the first scholar to broach the subject of miracles through the lens of medical science, Duffin brings a refreshingly new perspective and style... Overall, this is a thoughtful and thought-provoking book that should prove valuable to a range of readers, including historians and sociologists of medicine and religion, as well as believers and skeptics of the miraculous. * Journal of the History of Medicine *
