Editorial Reviews


In this innovative study, Klestinec recasts the history of early modern anatomy around students, teachers, and pedagogy, rather than authors, illustrators, and publication. In the process, she not only bridges the gap between Andreas Vesalius and William Harvey, but offers a provocative and convincing description of the cultural dynamics that produced the first great anatomy theaters.

(Katharine Park, Harvard University)

Well-researched, interesting and enlightening. The author does a fantastic job covering the topic.

(Vicki R. Book Bargains and Previews)

Cynthia Klestinec's Theaters of Anatomy is a scrupulous, wide-ranging, and thoughtful exploration of the staging of Renaissance anatomy. It is also a meticulous revisionary study that boldly and (for the most part) triumphantly sets out to challenge a good many of the perceived ideas surrounding the study of Renaissance dissection and anatomization.

(Jonathan Sawday Bulletin of the History of Medicine)

This text would well serve anyone interested in the history of medicine, science studies, and theories of the body.

(Annette Burfoot Canadian Bulletin of Medical History)

Thanks to Klestinec's clear style and focused argument, Theaters of Anatomy will be appreciated by students as well as specialist readers.

(Alexandra Bamji Isis)
