Caption: Anatomical dissection. 16th-century artwork showing the organs revealed by dissection (then forbidden), labelled in Latin. Organs shown in the dissected torso include the heart, lungs, liver, stomach, spleen, kidneys, intestines and bladder. This woodcut is from 'Margarita philosophica' (1503). This work, by the German author Georg Reisch (c.1467-1525), was an encyclopedic compilation of knowledge that became one of the standard textbooks of the time. The topics in its twelve books included grammar, dialectics, rhetoric, arithmetic, music, geometry, astronomy, physics, natural history, physiology, psychology, and ethics.
