Abstract

The discovery and introduction of penicillin into therapeutics changed the prognostic of infectious diseases, altered the path of medicine and saved innumerous lives. It was a major discovery in the history of medicine and represented the starting point for research that led to the discovery of other antibiotics. Portugal was one of the first European countries, non-participant in the II World War, to obtain penicillin for civilian use. Good diplomatic relations between Portugal, Brazil and the United States of America (USA) were decisive in attaining penicillin for our country. Portuguese pharmacists and physicians immediately perceived the significance of the antibiotic and developed innumerous studies pertaining the clinical applications and quality of the antibiotic.

Abstract

Throughout this book, an analysis is made of how History teaching is organized in what the International Standard Classification of Education standards call Secondary Education (ISCED 2 and 3), in four different European countries, in order to compare the importance given to History, the type of curriculum chosen and its place in the Secondary Education. In addition to Portugal, the other three countries (Spain, France and England) were chosen because of the historical relation each one has with Portugal. Considered fundamental in the integral formation of any young person and important for the development of critical thinking, it is possible to withdraw from the analysis carried out the idea that despite the importance that is notoriously given to this subject, there have been many debates regarding what to teach and also its general purpose in Education.

Abstract

The present collection of unpublished studies intends to open new paths in the area of financial and economic history of Portugal, during the 16th-18th centuries. Gathering a set of young researchers from various specialties, we sought to offer a window to the past through ten cases of study that, from the metropolis to the Beyond-Sea, from the financial management of the institutions to the structuring of commercial networks, the economic importance of the landlords, the Municipal Councils, the Merlums and the Inquisition, allow us to understand the centrality of economic structures and the construction of the kingdom in the modern period.
