Podcast from Green Templeton College recorded on Thursday 7th June 2012. With Professor Alan Emery, GTC Honorary Fellow.

The internationally renowned art critic John Berger in his book Ways of Seeing has written 'No other kind of relic or text from the past can offer such a direct testimony about the world which surrounded other people at other times'. In this lecture Professor Emery will attempt to show how the relationship between Doctor and Patient has changed over the centuries as illustrated in works of art - a process which continues today.
