Mirabilia is a B2 Journal (WebQualis in Brazil) from the Institut d’Estudis Medievals from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and is indexed in the following databases: Dialnet, InterClassica, Latindex, Regesta Imperii, BIBP (Base d’Information Bibliographique en Patristique) and UAB-DDD (Dipòsit Digital de Documents de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona).
Mirabilia is a Latin word which means “admirable things” or “wonders” and comes from the verb “mirare”, i.e. “to look at”. Therefore, this name evokes the admirable aspects of medicine in the context of humanities from the classic Greek to the Modern Age.
Mirabilia Medicinæ Journal intends not only to unite the studies of different branches in the human sciences inside the context of Medical Humanities, but also to establish a dialogue between the past and the present in medicine. It is an essential step in humanizing the Brazilian physician and capacitate him to a deeply and broad knowledge of the human experience.
In the second issue, the journal will include the works addressing the following theme: “The Foundations of Bioethics”. There will be also space for contributions in other themes in the subsection Varia, and I hope you feel comfortable in sending us your article.
