dc.description.abstractThis essay falls naturally into three harts: pre-Vesalian anatomy, the life and work of Vesalius, and the impact of his ideas on his contemporaries and on anatomists after him. In the section dealing with pre-Vesalian anatomy I shall limit myself as much as possible to those aspects of anatomy which have the greatest bearing on Vesalius' work. As the title of the essay includes "Re-birth of Anatomy" I will attempt to outline the spread of Vesalius' ideas, how they were received, and indicate how they moulded the thinking of future generations.en
