Abstract:
The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the anatomy of the heart developed in ancient through Renaissance medical texts. In a close reading of the source texts of the major works in their original languages and by comparing the concepts discussed and the language used, it is possible to trace the evolution of different theories and to observe where the authors relied upon each other and where they introduced their own research.
