Jump to: navigation, search

Galen (c.129-c.200) was a Greek philosopher and anatomist whose theory of humours had a profound influence on renaissance medicine.

His work On the use of the Parts was translated by Noccolo da Reggio in the 14th century, but he did not become a standard reference until the 15th century.
