      Pliny did make it into the Saxon herbals and evidence of his work can be seen in Gerald's, Bald's, and Hildegard of Bingen and others. Also, his work is referenced in Chaucer's CTales and other medieval works. One basically has to work backwards from Culpepper and into the monastic realm to trace the history. Linda Voight has written a paper on the influence of physicians in Saxon herbals.
      Life is meant to be an adventure; change is a gift that we have to learn to use aright. A Celtic curse is to be stuck in a field and unable to leave. To be stuck in one place forever.
      To be unable to venture or change.
      An open gate is the opposite of this. It is the invitation to venture, to grow, the call to be among the living vital elements of the world.
      The open gate is the call to explore new areas of yourself
      and the world around you

      I realize you are talking of German herbalists, but to omit Pliny the
      Elder and his Historia naturalis as an important reference would be a
      true negligence, I am sure this tome made it into the regions of Saxony
      also as well as the rest of the world.
