A short history of anatomy from the Greeks to Harvey by Charles Joseph Singer( Book )

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main task in preparing this account of the History of Anatomy has been the investigation of sources. I do not think I have referred to any book or manuscript without having myself examined either the original or a direct photograph or facsimile....In composing this short History of Anatomy I have been concerned to keep it within compassable limits. Unprogressive anatomical movements and periods are therefore but lightly touched upon, attention being concentrated on the line of definite advance. It appeared both unnecessary and undesirable to make any division between Physiology and Anatomy, at least in the period under consideration....'Vivitur ingenio, caetera mortis erunt," It is his genius that yet walks the earth; all else of himmay go down into silence, is the motto which Vesalius has chosen for the most beautiful of all his figures (Fig. 103). Let him be taken at his word! I have sought to treat him and the great men who went before and after him as they would be treated....With a view to the greatest possible compression, references, quotations, and bibliography are omitted from this preliminary sketch. They must await a more extensive work on the History of Anatomy...." --Charles Singer, Anatomical Institute, University College, London, May 26, 1925; Preface [to the First Edition], pages vi - viii

Greek and Roman necromancy by Daniel Ogden( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In classical antiquity, there was much interest in necromancy - the consultation of the dead for divination. People could seek knowledge from the dead by sleeping on tombs, visiting oracles, and attempting to reanimate corpses and skulls. Ranging over many of the lands in which Greek and Roman civilizations flourished, including Egypt, from the Greek archaic period through the late Roman empire, this book is the first comprehensive survey of the subject. Daniel Ogden surveys the places, performers, and techniques of necromancy as well as the reasons for turning to it. He investigates the cave-based sites of oracles of the dead at Heracleia Pontica and Tainaron, as well as the oracles at the Acheron and Avernus, which probably consisted of lakeside precincts. He argues that the Acheron oracle has been long misidentified, and considers in detail the traditions attached to each site. Readers meet the personnel - real or imagined - of ancient necromancy : ghosts, zombies, the earliest vampires, evocators, sorcerers, shamans, Persian magi, Chaldaeans, Egyptians, Roman emperors, and witches from Circe to Medea. Ogden explains the technologies used to evocate or reanimate the dead and to compel them to disgorge their secrets. He concludes by examining ancient beliefs about ghosts and their wisdom - beliefs that underpinned and justified the practice of necromancy
