Ficino's Neoplatonic treatise on longevity, De triplici vita, was first published in Florence in 1489. Ficino, who studied medicine in his youth (his father was a physician to the Medici), here combines the principles of nutritional and physical care with emotional and spiritual wellbeing, including the use of amulets and attention to astrological factors. Although his treatise came under scrutiny by the Holy Office, Ficino claimed that he was quoting from earlier writers rather than expounding his own opinions. - Cf. Adams F-414 (pt. 3); Wellcome I, 2258.
