Domenico Bertoloni Meli, Revisiting De humani corporis fabrica by Andreas Vesalius

Le labex TransferS et l’USR République des Savoirs invitent, du 02 au 31 mai, le Professeur Domenico Bertoloni Meli – Professeur d’Histoire et de philosophie des sciences à l’Indiana University, Bloomington (États-Unis).

Images from the great (in all senses) work by Andreas Vesalius, De humani corporis fabrica (1543) have become iconic and ubiquitous. Nonetheless, the complexity and range of Vesalius’s iconographic enterprise are considerably richer than standard accounts would suggest. This talk attempts to provide a sense of the variety of challenges faced by Vesalius and posed to us by his images, large and small.
