Example text

The publication of this work was delayed by a threesided dispute between the author, the publisher Simon de Colines (who also happened to be his godfather) and Etienne de la Riviere, a barber-surgeon with some artistic talent who appeared to be an ideal collaborator. How- ever in 1539 the project was interrupted by a court order (when the book was actually being printed), because de la Riviere had brought an accusation of plagiarism against Estienne. The legal battle took six years to resolve, and it was finally ordered that the name of Etienne de la Riviere should appear as one of the authors while the copyright would remain with Charles Estienne.

This impious act scandalized the conservative Catholic town and Vesalius left once again, this time settling in Padua where he received his degree on 5 December 1537. In the following year he was nominated professor of anatomy at the university. Vesalius immediately revolutionized the teaching methods at Padua, which were still based on Mondino’s system of ostensor and demonstrator, and began to conduct dissections personally (Fig. 23). He generally used human cadavers but made additional comparative studies on animals, often in vivo.

Among these was a famous representation of the “flayed man”,25 an idea which Valverde may have borrowed from Michelangelo. ” Gabriele Fallopius (1523–1565) also studied under Vesalius at Padua. After teaching anatomy at Ferrara and then Pisa, he returned to Padua where he published Observationes Anatomicae [296] and later Tractatus de Decoratione [298]. The books describes the results of his anatomical studies on various organs including the cranial nerves, the soft and hard palates, and the uterine tubes that bear his name.
