There is a minor tradition in art of depicting Christ as the Divine Pharmacist, an Apothecary of the Soul, mixing and compounding the medicine for mankind. In this illumination from a 16th century manuscript, He is shown writing out the prescription to treat original sin. There’s no word on whether Adam and Eve had a co-pay.
Art: Christ the Pharmacist with Adam and Eve, from Chants royaux sur la conception couronnee du Puy du Rouen, Paris. MS Francais 1537, fol. 82 v.
