Description

It is generally considered that Vesalius pioneered the study of anatomy, however he did have a number of significant predecessors whose contributions were essential in the history of anatomy. It is argued that the most notable was Berengario da Carpi, who lived in the 15th/16th Century and is considered by some as the first modern anatomist.

He [da Carpi] possessed a bold and original mind, he made original observations, and he had a healthy scepticism of blind tradition. Evidence of these qualities, together with the earliest use of figures to illustrate the text, are found in his work… His illustrations…are renowned, and, although somewhat crude, they possess artistic merit.

– Edwin Clarke
