Иностранные врачи в России в 16 веке при государевом дворе.

Abstract (en)

Since Richard Chancellor arrived to haven of St. Nicholas in 1553, begins the story of the commercial and diplomatic intercourse between Russia and England. British physicians played an interesting part in this story. During the second half of the Sixteenth Century seven doctors visited the Court of Moscow: Ralph Standish, Richard Reynolds, Elesius Bomelius, Robert Jacob, Baldwin Hamey, Mark Ridley, and Timothy Willis. Who were those brave travelers? What induced them to trade the «good old» England for the barbarous «Moscovy»? The article contains the result of independent study of biographical database of those physicians against the background of diplomatic relationship between two countries. The sources testify that everyone had some problems with debt or law, was arrested, or fined. Most of them failed examination in the Royal Medical College. No one had a license permitted practicing in England, or medical experience, but all of them had received excellent recommendations from the Queen, when leaving the country. Those facts let us look in a different way at the role of British physicians visited Russia during the Elizabethan period.
