Project description

English EN

A modern map of the ancient body

A team of classicists, historians, modern anatomists, digital artists and software developers is working on a lexicon of ancient Greco-Roman anatomical terms. They will re-enact ancient anatomical dissections and develop a high-end, digital visual atlas presenting three-dimensional reconstructions of the body as perceived by the different authors. Key medical writers range from Aristotle (fourth century BCE) to Galen of Pergamum (second century CE). This is the goal of the EU-funded ATLOMY project, which will focus on the Classical Greek period to the High-Roman Empire. The findings will further our understanding of ancient ideas of the body and of empirical methods of scientific research in ancient times. It will also enable the growing audience of Greco-Roman medical and philosophical writings to deeply engage with these sources.
