Abstract

Studying anatomy has changed from being outlawed by the church to widely studied all over the world in the last 600 years. The purpose of this research is to compare how anatomy in Andreas Vesalius, De humani corporis fabrica (Fabric of the Human Body) first published in 1543 as well as William Harveys, De motu cordis (On the Movement of the Heart) published in 1628, compares to modern day texts such as Elaine Marieb, Human Anatomy and Physiology (2015). It will focus primarily on the anatomy of the circulatory system. It will also explore the role of root words and their use in the etymology of terms used in the anatomy of the circulatory system today.
