dc.descriptionThe mysterious death of the famous Islamic military and political leader, Saladin, is the focus of the 2018 conference. Born in 1138, he enjoyed good health until the age 47 when he developed a serious illness about which there is very little medical information. Recovering after 2 months he continued to experience intermittent periods of “fever and colic” including one in October 1190 during which he was bedridden for a month. Once again, he recuperated and seems to have been symptom-free for approximately 2 years. However, in early 1193, at the age of 57, Saladin was stricken with his final illness. For 14 days his health steadily deteriorated as he experienced increasingly high fevers, severe headaches, and intervals of loss of consciousness. On March 4, 1193 the Sultan of Egypt and Syria passed away. Dr. Gluckman’s diagnosis is that Saladin died of typhoid fever. Brief biographies of both Dr. Gluckman and Thomas Asbridge, medieval historian, appear at the end of the program document.en_US
