Resumen

CERDA L, Jaime. Moses Maimonides, "Physician of princes, prince of physicians ". Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2009, vol.26, n.4, pp.370-373. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182009000500013.

Moses Maimonides (1135-1204) is considered the most prominent figure of Judaism during the Middle Ages. Born within the Sephardic Jewish community of Córdoba, his rich intellectual education (theological, philosophi-cal and medical) together with a deep spirituality gave birth to the figure of a highly humanitarian, rational and dedicated physician. His medical legacy includes ten treatises, among them 'Medical Aphorisms of Moses', a set of 1,500 aphorisms organized in 25 chapters, each dealing with a different área of medicine. His theological works and the renowned 'Guide for the Perplexed' raised his figure as a theologist and modern philosopher, being the latest his most universal creation. His life and legacy are an invitation to raise the medical vocation and practice beyond a simple occupation.

Palabras clave : Maimonides; Judaism; history.
