Anatomist  GA

Historical background

The exploration of the human body fascinated medieval surgeons. The need to find out what is inside of a human being drove the few brave with strong stomachs to dissection of the deceased.

The Church was against any sort of manipulation of dead bodies. Many popes not only condemned dissection, but sometimes even threatened to "excommunicate anybody who dissected a human body." Additionally, "a kind of inquisition resulted in which anyone found guilty of molesting the dead was burned at the stake or otherwise severely punished".

Even though the popes looked down upon dissection, they did not mind much the inspection of fatal wounds by experienced physicians. "Although necropsy would not necessarily be implied in such cases, a certain amount of anatomic probing would have to be done". Such inspections were usually administered (and allowed) in cases of conspicuous circumstances surrounding the deaths of higher priests, popes, or nobility.

How does it work?

An Anatomist can produce knowledge in the following ways:

* By dissecting bodies on the Slab
* By observing certain creatures in the field (select them with your Job Log)
