Different from other Vesalius-commemorations, however, we like to examine what - until the 16th century - did happen to the knowledge of anatomy as described by Galen (130-210) whose apparent “faults” were so effectively corrected by Vesalius. The intention of Andreas Vesalius - possibly after the authoritative Iranian physician and writer Rhazes (854-925 CE) - to correct Galen’s mistakes, may have been helped greatly by his initial contacts with the original Byzantine / Greek texts of Galen that had been translated by Alessandro Benedetti (1450-1512), professor of Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Padua, during his medical practice on the Greek island of Crete. This may also serve as an example of early East-West cooperation.||Notes:||Under the Auspices of: Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation, Peter's Academy of Arts and Sciences, National Medical Chamber, N.I.
