Abstract[EN] In this work, which derives from a study into the prevention of illness in medieval Spain, and which forms part of a larger work on medieval fevera in all their aspects, we concern ourselves with their causes, symptoms, prognostications and treatment. We are grateful for the support ofthe British Academy and The WelIcome Trust in funding this study. Through this work we aim to establish a certain order in the fevers whieh figure in the medieal texts ofthe Middle Ages which we have analysed. We have grouped them, following the example of Galen, aeeording to their point of origin: spirits, humours and solid matter. Then, within each of these categories, we have classified them by the spirit or humour affected. The basie elements of each fever are described in order to differentiate them. We offer, finally, over one hundred names by which the different fevers can be known.
