Abstract

For centuries, the human body was considered an inviolable treasure chest, as religious authorities largely restricted anatomical dissections. The first scientists to attempt these kinds of studies often were forced to perform their research in secret, far from the eyes of the clergy. It was only at the beginning of the 13th century that we find the first traces of public anatomical dissection performed by Mondino de’ Liuzzi, professor of anatomy at the University of Bologna [2]. From that moment on, radical new ideas (both religious and scientific) were proposed. Dissections became a common method to teach human anatomy throughout Europe.
