"Your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions." Joel II, 28.
By Roman law the collegium was a corporation established for the control and administration of medicine. In the Middle Ages the College of Physicians of Rome, composed of highly representative physicians, assumed complete supervision of all practitioners of the healing arts and allied activities in that city. Florence was the scene of a college's most effective operation in Italy. From this city the movement infiltrated the rest of Europe and Great Britain with certain deviations in form and function determined by local or national circumstances.
