After the publication of the Fabrica , Vesalius was reminded of his roots in Paris, as his former teacher Sylvius threatened him with opposition if he did not retract his criticism of Galen.

Vesalius described his radical departure from academic ambitions by hurling his books and notes into the fire. In his reflection on whether this loss should be regretted, Vesalius interestingly juxtaposed Galen with Rhazes:. Along with all the books of Galen, which I had used in the study of anatomy and, in the way these things go, had scribbled all sorts of notes upon. Because when I left Italy to apply myself to the court [of Charles V] and the physicians whom you know, together with some notables, had judged very pessimistically my books and all that is published these days for the promotion of the medical profession, I burned everything, with the intention of restraining myself somewhat in writing.

However I have often regretted the upsurge and have felt sorry for not listening to the advice of my friends, who were present. Although, as far as the notes are concerned, I am very much pleased, because even if they would still be in my possession, I would not feel tempted to publish them, as I can easily foresee that they would make each and every one my enemy. Even the small part of my work which happens to contradict Galen, has already enraged so many, and three years ago already had them gird their loins to protect Galen, before my work had even appeared.

They will eventually submit their writings to the students and come forward with a longdrawn letter with slanderings, without explaining themselves fully. You do know how often it occurs that, under the supervision of the teacher or after reading for the first time, one makes a note which afterwards appears completely odd and ridiculous.

Whereas I am now baffled by my own stupidity, that I had hardly understood what was written and that I had deceived my own eyes so badly. Losing the Paraphrasis however saddens me dearly, as I enjoyed so much its compilation, comparing the Arabs to Galen and the other Greeks with regard to the parts of the profession, treated by Rhazes in each book.

Even if it were only for my grandfather Everard, of whom I possess a very learned study on the mentioned books of Rhazes…. The Renaissance polarisation of Arab and Greek authors returns in the contrast pictured between Galen and Rhazes. We learn from this passage that Vesalius, throughout his work on Galen, and even throughout the Fabrica , enjoyed reading Rhazes and comparing his work with that of the Greeks.

It is clear, however, that the balance of the comparison had changed decisively since he had published his Paraphrasis in As has been said, Rhazes is known to have been of critical mind and he did not exclude Galen from his criticism. It is however a practical guide to medicine in which Rhazes comes forward as a clinical and empirical mind, 65 but which contains no critical discussions of other authors.

Galen is mentioned every ten or so pages, but is only referred to and not commented upon. Vesalius included words from the Almansor in his Tabulae , and additional study will probably reveal that words and ideas from the Almansor also reached the Fabrica. On the whole, however, the Almansor will not offer the desired connection either. This is different for the Liber Continens. I gathered that the strong humanist zeal of the early sixteenth century could have resulted in censoring the Continens from its critical passages on Galen, so it remained to be seen whether Vesalius could have actually encountered them.

The Latin Continens has escaped the eye of scholars in the years when Vesalius and Galenism were fervently studied. The Arabic edition was published from , upon which Ahmad Mohammed Mokhtar described the critique of Galen therein, in He offers a quote from a Latin edition, but is unable to reflect thoroughly on its implications for the history of Galenism in Europe.

The Latin Continens has remained out of sight ever since. I, title page. I consulted the edition of the Continens , which was published in Venice only nine years before Vesalius arrived in Padua. The intestine and the bladder expel their contents by means of a muscle. In healthy people, the urine is discharged when the muscle wrapped around the exit of the bladder relaxes and the bladder carries out its function.

The function of the bladder occurs naturally, not voluntarily, by a natural expelling force that expels waste. Then at the end of the mentioned book he says similarly that the bladder expels its contents by voluntarily relaxing its muscles and that it [also] contracts around and retains its contents. In the fourth chapter of the summary of the Affected Parts , Galen says: whenever the lesion occurs in the rear interior of the brain, if it affects half of it, it causes haemiplegia, and if it affects the whole, it causes apoplexy. Galen confirms this in the fourth chapter of his book; do verify this.

The doctors were warming [the skin], but I knew that the skin of the head receives its sense from the four nerves coming from the first vertebra of the spine. I treated these places and he recovered. Also further down in the Continens , 72 the critical references to Galen are still to be found intact, for example:.

Sp00n Is The Alien (Morbus)

Galen says in the first book of the Affected Parts : […] When the remains of an ulcus are found in the stools, and the pain is in the upper part of the stomach and in the anterior of the thorax, then the ulcus is in the stomach. But when it is in the posterior part, the ulcus is in the oesophagus.

And when the pain started after eating mustard or silium the ulcus is in the mouth of the stomach. But when the ulcus is in the pylorus, the pain will be felt all the way up to the thorax. But if the ulcus were in the mouth of the stomach, the pain would be felt at the time when [the food] reaches the places near the thorax. And if the ulcus were in the stomach, I state nothing would be felt at all; or only after a long time. But during the course of what is swallowed, nothing would be felt.

Therefore grease is not to be used except in case of severe pain after cupping and purgatives. And after these [therapies], poppy seeds and vinegar should be applied. Galen says in the thirteenth chapter of Megategni : When the head of the muscle is wounded, torn or punctured and one expects spasms which medicines against spasm will not cure, the muscle is to be incised in length; this will make the spasm disappear by itself.

And he says: Similarly whenever the muscle is wounded or punctured, the indication is to incise it. Especially when the patient is close to going into a spasm. Or when, because of this [spasm], he will suffer mental derangement. Because both afflictions respond with difficulty to treatment. By no means incise the muscle, unless other therapies have gone without effect. In some places the Latin edition differs from the Arabic edition of the Continens as it is now available to us.

Some passages make a somewhat obscure impression in the translation, as in quote six, where the distinction between Galen and Rhazes appears to have been lost. A comparison of content between the Continens and the Fabrica requires additional study. At this stage, two other similarities between the works can be noted. The first is a similarity in structure. As a collection of notes, the Continens has a remarkable pattern.

As a result, the collected notes acquire a peculiar character when they are read one after the other; much like a sequence of observations and quotes without a beginning or an end. Although the Fabrica has a more defined structure, it offers a similar experience. Like Rhazes, Vesalius structures his text as a sequence of observations with intermitting critical references to Galen and other authors, for example:.

Galen says that the stomach is located in the centre of the body, and many of the professors of dissection not only borrow this statement from him but also assert that, of all the different positions, it has chosen the one exactly in the middle because it is a common workshop for all the body parts. They have not measured our human proportions carefully enough! I am therefore surprised that Galen wrote in On Bones that the bones which form the breast bone are joined by synarthrosis…. In all my researches so far I have not found a pure bone in the human or any other heart; at the point where Galen says this bone occurs I find a cartilaginous substance that, in my opinion, is merely the roots of the large artery and arterial vein as they come from the heart.

According to Aristotle, Galen and other physicians and scientists, the breasts were placed higher in humans and lower in other animals because of a lack of the nourishment they call it the residue that has to be converted into milk; but I do not think this is entirely correct. I do not understand what Galen means when he claims that the intestines and mesentery receive veins that do not end in the liver and when he says elsewhere that branches spread from the hollow vein to the intestines.

This is totally false… The critical discussions are included in the main text, creating a similar pattern of statements, observations and discussion. A distant similarity between the works that could be noted is size. Each of the two volumes of the Continens measures forty by twenty-seven centimetres. At the same time, the Fabrica had the largest format that could be printed in those days. It measures forty-two by twenty-eight centimetres. Both works are approximately four centimetres thick.

Little did they take note that Vesalius also ended his career with an affirmation of sympathy for the Arabian author. When he decided to follow his great-grandfather in this practice, he had to do so within the setting of the early sixteenth-century campaign against Arab elements in medicine. In the Paraphrasis , Vesalius cleanses Rhazes in Latin appearance and subordinates him rather violently to a sanctified Galen, following the ideals of his humanist teachers in Paris.

As Vesalius matures in his academic career, his vision becomes more inclusive. In subsequent publications, Vesalius treats the Arabs as on a par with the Greeks, and attempts to reconcile their differences. In both the Fabrica and the Letter on the China Root , Vesalius criticises Galen, while expressing sympathy for the Arab authors, Rhazes in particular.

Vesalius develops an internationalist vision as he approaches the decisive moment when empiricism is allowed to triumph over authority. Unfortunately, Vesalius never mentioned the Continens , and if he did mention the name of Rhazes, it was always in connection with his work on the Almansor. It is, however, quite unlikely that Vesalius was unaware of the work. It had been a publication of great esteem in Europe ever since it had been translated by Farraguth in Vesalius said in the Letter on the China Root that he had gathered much useful information for a work on pharmacology.

Nevertheless, finding hard evidence that Vesalius did know of the Continens would require further investigation. The Continens also offered an editorial structure, a template, to juxtapose critique and empirical observation. The giant size of both publications could make us speculate that Vesalius desired to compete with the Continens , the size of which was akin to its importance in the medical tradition.

Most importantly, the discourse of the Continens could be likened to that of the Fabrica. In this article I have attempted to show that the way Galen is discussed in the Fabrica could be compared to the way Rhazes discussed other authors in the Continens. If Vesalius did know of the Continens , what could have prevented him from referring to it to legitimise his critique on Galen? The answer I can offer is that during the wave of anti-Arabism, Arab sources could not be cited to support major scientific developments.

Whether the critique of Galen contained in the Continens actually influenced Vesalius or not, the fact that these texts were available in Latin editions should make us realise that criticism of Galen was not a new phenomenon in Renaissance publications. The critique by Vesalius was significant, not because Galen had never been criticised, but because Vesalius was a humanist who had earlier on subscribed to the ideals of the humanist movement, including the infallibility of Galen. The case of Rhazes in the work of Vesalius will serve to better understand the strange dynamic of early sixteenth-century humanism.

It corresponds to recent studies which place Renaissance humanism in the broader context of the Arabic—Latin exchange, starting properly with the conquests of Sicily and Toledo in the eleventh century. The early sixteenth century saw the climax of a desire among Christian humanists to emancipate themselves from the Arabic tradition. This liberation towards an international vision of science, I hope, will only add to the charm of the champion of Renaissance anatomy.

I am grateful to Ineke Loots and Ibrahim Ikhlaf for their indispensable help in transcribing and translating from the Latin and the Arabic, respectively. Any errors remaining are my own. Cushing, ibid. Campbell, ibid. Bosworth et al. That is to say, the assignment to Aristotle of a central position in philosophy and science is partly understood as one aspect of the European assertion of distinction from Islam.

The purely negative activity of turning from Islam, especially when so much was being learnt from Arab science and philosophy, would have been difficult, if not impossible, without a positive complement. Venice: In officina Lucae Antonii Juntae, Leiden professors Otto Heurnius and Adriaen van Valkenburg sought to do the truth a favour by creating the holes themselves before showing a heart to their students.

See F. Vesalius himself went through a process of transformation in his perception of the septum, as has been described by G. Bohn, , To make the issue of the heart septum even more interesting, it has been suggested that Arabic manuscripts influenced the evolution of this idea in Europe. Mc Govern and C. Thomas, , 3— 9.
