Avicenna, also known as Ibn Sina, was a physician and philosopher in an era known as the Islamic Golden Age. When he was not working as a healer in the courts of different rulers, he collected the best medical knowledge of his time. Through travels and upheavals, his efforts led to the groundbreaking early medical encyclopedia The Canon of Medicine, which scholars and healers read for centuries afterward. This graphic biography explores the life and inspirations behind Avicenna’s highly influential projects.
