(iv)Modern anatomy was indeed the resurrection of ancient anatomy. he learned from Galen that Alexandria had been the center of anatomical research. (ii)Vesalius extended this humanism to include anatomy. .(i) The development of art and literature during the Renaissance as a rebirth of the truth and perfection once possessed by the Greeks in antiquity.
