Episode Summary

The Immortal Oath
The story of how Hippocrate fought to establish medicine as science. Hippocrates theory, that the art of healing comes from knowledge and study, offended the powerful Amphion, leader of the cult which believed in prayers and potions to the Gods as a cure for illness. But when Hippocrates saved Amphion's life, even at the sacrifice of his personal happiness and the risk of his own life, Amphion became a convert to Hippocrates' science. Then Hippocrates wrote the oath which has served medicine from that day to this known as the Hippocratic Oath.moreless
