Born in Brussels on the last day of 1514, Andreas Vesalius is considered the greatest anatomist of all time. He was contemporary of many outstanding scholars and thinkers that ventured to explore new areas of mathematics, philosophy, art, astronomy, science, and religion. In this period of great intellectual awakening Vesalius published in 1543 the first map of the new human anatomy: De Humanis Corporis Fabrica (On the Fabric of the Human Body).
