Jonathan Sawday. A compelling study of the culture of dissection in the English Renaissance which informed intellectual inquiry in Europe for nearly 200 years. In this outstanding work, Prof. Jonathan Sawday explores the dark, morbid eroticism of the Renaissance anatomy theater. He traces the often illicit activities of the great anatomists of the period, linking their work to a wider cultural discourse which embraces not only the great monuments of Renaissance art, but also the very foundation of the modern idea of knowledge. The book provides a richly interdisciplinary framework for conceptualizing the body in literature, art, & the domains of the religious, the moral, the medical & the political. B&W illustrations.
