Filip Terč, father of modern apitherapy, was born in Prapořištĕ, a tiny village in Czech Republic. He lived and worked in Maribor in Slovenia. The more modern study of apitherapy, specifically bee venom, was initiated through the efforts of Phillip Terc in his published results "Report about a Peculiar Connection Between the Bee stings and Rheumatism" in 1888.
