Joseph W. Slap

This paper discusses a series of Netherlandish paintings and engravings from the fifteenth through the seventeenth century, which depict quack doctors removing stones from the heads of patients as a cure for madness. While speculations about the psychoanalytic meanings of the stones are not conclusive, the paper is interesting for the material studied (there are plates of five of the works) and for the discussion of the late medieval society in which it was produced.
