Of the 50 preserved medieval manuscripts of medicina antiqua, the existing codex from the Austrian National Library holds an exceptional position due to its unique book decoration: it contains not only an extensive herbarium, but also numerous representations from the world of therapy and practitioners, painted in invigorating opaque colours. There exists barely any other manuscript that serves so well as a testimony to the ancient medicinal archives of the Middle Ages as the Codex Vindobonensis.
