Description
"Book of Hours," Courtesy Ghent University Library--Gerard Groote, founder of the Brothers of the Common Life, translated a Latin religious text into the vernacular. The image seen here is an illustrated version based on his translation. The status quo, whether religious, philosophical, or medical, during the age in which Vesalius lived, came under increasing scrutiny. Groote set in motion a challenge to authority that Martin Luther later encapsulated n the Protestant Reformation.
