Aus der Medizin des Rinascimento An der Hand des “Leben von Benvenuto Cellini” nach der übersetzung Goethes

Nature volume 128, page 173 (01 August 1931) | Download Citation



THIS fine volume contains a commentary on the passages in Goethe's translation of Cellini's autobiography which throw light on the medicine of the Renaissance. The close relationship between the artists and anatomists of the period, of which Leonardo da Vinci offers the best-known example, is well illustrated by Cellini, who counted among his friends Guido Guidi, otherwise known as Vidus Vidius, of Florence, and Berengario da Carpi, of Bologna, who, in addition to being highly skilled surgeons, made valuable contributions to anatomy.
