Vivian Nutton is a historian of medicine who has written extensively on from the ancient Greeks to the 17th century, especially Galen (129-216 C.E.) and the Galenic tradition. As well as his book on medicine in Classical Antiquity, he has published editions and translations of Latin and Greek texts from Antiquity and the Renaissance. His recent work has centred on the Renaissance anatomist, Andreas Vesalius, and included studies of two major sets of unpublished annotations prepared by Vesalius for revised versions of his most important works.
