“The purpose of anatomical images during the period of the Renaissance to the
19th century had as much to do with what we would call aesthetic and theological
understanding as with the narrower interests of medical illustrators as now understood
… They were not simply instructional diagrams for the doctor technician, but
statements about the nature of human beings as made by God in the context of the
created world as a whole … they are about the nature of life and death…”
—Martin Kemp and Marina Wallace, Spectacular Bodies
