For some reason, the sacral heritage of Lovran and its surroundings has escaped the eye of medical historians, until now. seeing that the Parish Church of st George in Lovran holds a central position in this heritage, the authors provide an analysis of medical elements in the church. The analysis has focused on three aspects. The first aspect are medical elements, especially the anthropological features of characters depicted on the frescoes, which belong to the earliest and most representative of the whole region.

The purposes of this research, using the Parse method, were to discover the structure of sacrificing something important and to expand the theory of human becoming. The core concepts of relinquishing the cherished, shifting preferred options, and fortifying affiliations were discovered during the process of extraction-synthesis using synopses of dialogues from 10 church parishioners.

Using different psychoanalytic points of view, in this comparative study of "Traumnovelle" by Schnitzler and "Eyes Wide Shut" by Kubrick the author analyses the cultural changes between the first and last thirds of the 20th century. This change consists in the way "facts of life" are dealt with. It is a change from identity through insight and understanding to an identity through excited self-objectification.

In the last few years we have witnessed an intense debate, in which different opinions coming from very different cultures agreed that our Western civilization is currently facing a crisis that primarily affects the human being, even before economy or culture. Everywhere we see a rising demand for ethical values and responsibility, able to embrace the whole human being. Medicine is obviously in the forefront in facing the challenges of our time because of its intrinsically moral dimension.

In the early years of the introduction of Christianity into China, one American medical missionary distinguished himself by his kindness and generosity towards the Chinese people, and also by his surgical prowess. Peter Parker (1804-1888) was a graduate from the Yale University Medical School and was also an ordained minister. He came to the south China city of Canton (now called Guangzhou) in 1834, built a hospital, treated the patients without charge and also groomed medical apprentices to help him in his work.

Although part of the medical fold since the 1870s, hypnosis was long relegated to the margins, recognised and used by only a relatively small group of medical professionals. In the decades around 1900 hypnotic techniques were monopolised as a form of medical treatment through a long and in no way linear process. Hypnosis of laymen was vehemently opposed, however, denounced as being far too dangerous. And yet, medical participation in the aura of spectacular intervention into the human psyche garnered support.
