Girolamo Manfredi
Centiloquium de medicis et infirmis

translation by Giuliano Bravenna.
Google translate

Girolamo Manfredi or Hieronimus de Manfredis (1430? - 1493) was a man of vast culture: in the Bologna studio he first taught logic, then philosophy, then medicine and astronomy, with the duty of making public annual predictions and a tacuinum . In 1476 he published, together with Cola Martino, Pietrobono Avogario and Galeotto Marzio, the Cosmographia of Ptolemy. His best known work is The Why , a vernacular readjustment of Aristotle's spurious Problemata . In his lifetime Manfred enjoyed the reputation of never having erred in his judgments of astrology. And if Pico della Mirandola, in his Disputationes (II, 9) affirms that he did not know how to predict his own death, Lucio Bellanti, in his Responsionesal Pico, denies that this is true. The Centiloquium , first published in Bologna in 1489, was reprinted in Venice in 1500 and in Nuremberg in 1530. The original Latin text can be downloaded from the Gallica site of the BNF (Bibliothèque Nationale de France).

This book is a collection of 100 aphorisms regarding health and diseases, Catarchic astrology (Electional), Decumbiture chart (Inception chart that is cast for the moment that a person lays down or takes to their bed as a result of becoming ill.) and Horary.

Here are a few aphorisms

Although medicine is a complete science in itself, the doctor who works without astrology is not perfect.

The good doctor is the one in whose nativity Mars and Venus are united by body or with some benevolent aspect, or even Venus and Mercury. But the perfect physician will be the one in whose nativity Mars and Venus are united in the sixth house.

There will undoubtedly be a grave error on the part of the astrologer in the interrogations which they bring about the sick person when the vii house and his lord are impeded. Therefore, postpone the question or do not comment on it for fear of making a mistake.

When the sign of the sixth house is Libra and Mars is in it, it means eye pain.
Those born will be deaf if Mercury is lord of the sixth house and is injured by Saturn with a malevolent aspect, especially if he were in the sixth house. He will have the afflicted hearing in whose nativity Jupiter and Saturn appear afflicted above the horizon, I mean their being in vile and retrograde or burnt places.
Those born when Mars and Venus are afflicted above the horizon will have a spoiled sense of smell or suffer from nose diseases. (Note: Allergies)
If the lord of the ascendant is in the 8th house received by the lord of the 8th, but he does not receive it, free from the disease after having despaired.
When the disease begins when the Moon comes out of combustion, it will increase until the day of the full moon.
Do not neglect the diseases that the planets mean in the signs according to the Egyptians.
In Aries, Saturn has the chest, Jupiter the heart, Mars the head, the Sun the testicles and the thighs, Venus the feet, Mercury the shins, the Moon the knees.
