In this Ph.D. dissertation, four Latin dissertations are edited, with translation, commentary and introduction. These dissertations quite clearly represent the latest medical knowledge of the mid 18th century, and recent theories are propounded, discussed and examined against practical and empirical knowledge; the texts are thus representative examples of the kind of academic dissertations that communicated and discussed relevant factual matter as opposed to those that just constituted an amount of text, suitable for elaborating on during the disputational ceremony.
