Galen, Ancient Greek physician Featured Pierre Roch Vigneron Print

Galen, Ancient Greek physician

Galen (130-200 AD), Ancient Greek physician. After Galen's death, his body of work became a medical authority among Europeans until his views on anatomy were overthrown in the 16th century by Vesalius, and those on physiology in the 17th century by Harvey. In Galen's time, human dissection was taboo, and Galen's anatomical assumptions, which were based on animals, were not, as it was later seen, always applicable to humans. He was the first to use the pulse as a diagnostic aid and the first to describe the flow of urine through the ureters to the bladder. Artwork from a collection of portraits by French artist Pierre Roch Vigneron (1789-1872)

Jean Fernel, French physician Featured Pierre Roch Vigneron Print

Jean Fernel, French physician

Jean Francois Fernel (1497-1558), French physician. Fernel, the son of an innkeeper, lived in Paris and became personal physician to King Henry II of France. His 1554 textbook dealt systematically with physiology, pathology and treatment, and was a standard work for over a century, with many editions and translations. Fernel was also court physician to Catherine de Medici. He introduced the term physiology to describe the study of the body's function, and was the first to describe the spinal canal.
