Our adventure comes to an end for the moment but we hope Eutopia’s journey will resume soon. All our articles will still be available for reading. Thank you for having supported Eutopia until now.

In 1543 Andrés Laguna, a prominent physician, presented a Latin address in which he referred to a woman who had come to him for medical assistance: "A woman came to me who looked to be in a very bad way: she was weeping uncontrollably, sorrowful, pale, her arms and legs were injured, even beaten, her eyes were vacant, she was shockingly wasted." The woman was called Europa, and she told Laguna of her sufferings.
