The grandson of the founder of the Estienne printing press, Henri II was a great humanist scholar as well as a publisher. He was not medically trained. His Dictionarium Medicum is derived from many different ancient sources and aims to clarify medical terminology and concepts and exercised great influence on the incorporation of classical medical works into renaissance medical literature.
