The magic between anatomy, religion and magic

Why did it take us so long to learn about how our bodies work? Thomas Schnalke explains how belief held us back. 

To cut open a human body can be either a civilised or barbaric act. "Some of the earliest knowledge of our insides comes from the wounded and dead on the battlefield," notes Thomas Schnalke, Professor of Medical History and Medical Museology of the Berlin Museum of Medical History, in his introduction to our new book, Anatomy: Exploring the Human Body.
