TUNE Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - De Humani Corporis Fabrica
De Humani Corporis Fabrica was the title of Andreas Vesalius's ground-breaking anatomy book, meaning 'on the fabric of the human body' in Latin.
Published in 1543, in challenged established doctrines that had been accepted since Galen. In anatomy lessons of the time, a lecturer would sit in a high chair, reading from a book while a demonstrator showed what was being described in the human body. Unfortunately, the books were incorrect in many details, as much of the ancient anatomical investigation had been conducted on non-humans, and the lecturers tended not to actually look at the human bodies themselves.
Vesalius taught that we should challenge accepted knowledge where it doesn't fit with reality.
In this song Kathryn Thomas plays both flute and bass flute.
De Humani Corporis Fabrica
Open your eyes, open your eyes
De Humani Corporis Fabrica,
Open your eyes, see for yourself
