520    Smallpox inoculation in the eighteenth century was the 
       genesis of modern immunology. This new method of purposely
       contracting a disease in order to secure protection from 
       it was an empirical folk practice from the New East that 
       ran counter to traditional European habits of thought in 
       both medicine and religion. Based on diligent research in 
       all available sources, this detailed study brings into 
       relief the significant factors that made smallpox 
       inoculation acceptable to Western Europeans--namely, the 
       increasing threat and fear of the disease, particularly 
       among the upper classes; a strong program led by members 
       of such respected scientific groups and the Royal Society 
       in London and the Academic Royale des Sciences in Paris; 
       the interest and participation of both the English and 
       French royal families who furnished an example for their 
       subjects to emulate. In presenting this account of an 
       important development in medical history Genevieve Miller 
       offers evidence to prove that, contrary to the usual view,
       most religious leaders were not opposed to the practice of
       inoculation and that a number of them were active 
       proponents. She also points out how, in the sphere of 
       medical thought, experience with inoculation clarified 
       ides concerning the etiology of smallpox by supplying 
       proof that it originated with a specific material 
       substance introduced into the human body from without.
