Art History

Native to the Mediterranean, mustard was introduced into northern Europe by the Romans, who distinguished two kinds: white (Sinapis alba) and black (Brassica nigra). Both species were used as condiments and medicinals, although black mustard is the stronger of the two. The Roman natural historian Pliny, recognized as an authority on herbal medicine throughout the Middle Ages, recommended mustard as a stimulant, to clear the sinuses and the eyesight, help bruises and stiffness, warm chilled parts of the body, and as an antidote to counteract poisonous mushrooms.
