For hundreds of years, the European world valued the sanctity of the church more than scientific quest and it was not until early 14th century that human dissection was revived as a tool for teaching anatomy in Bologna, Italy after a hiatus of over 1, years [ 11 ].
Revival of Human Dissection and Its Rise in Popularity In Medieval Europe, considerable advances in the field of science could only be achieved during the 12th century and early 13th century, with the setting up of universities in ParisBolognaOxfordMontpellier and Padua [ 12 ]. From 12th century onwards, the church did not forbid human dissection in general; however, certain edicts were directed at specific practices [ 13 ].
One of the significant proscriptions that Pope Alexander III enunciated at the Council of Tours in was the prohibition of clerics to involve themselves in the studies of physical nature and the canon directive was named as "Ecclesia abhorret a sanguine" meaning "The church abhors blood. The Holy Roman emperor Frederick II took significant measures towards the progress of science which reflected his free thinking outlook.
Inhe issued a decree which mandated that a human body should be dissected at least once in every five years for anatomical studies and attendance was made compulsory for everyone who was to practice medicine or surgery [ 15 ]. This initiative was a giant step towards revival of human dissection in the domain of anatomical sciences and towards the later part of the thirteenth century, the realization that human anatomy could only be taught by the dissection of human body resulted in its legalisation in several European countries between and [ 16 ].
The new found enthusiasm in human dissection ceased for a short period from aboutwhen Pope Boniface VIII issued a Papal Bull entitled, "De sepolturis" which forbade manipulation of corpses and their reduction to bones. The Bull was aimed to stop the dismemberment of the cadavers and prohibit the trade that had developed involving bones from soldiers killed in Holy wars. It was not meant to impede human dissection and although it stopped the practice of dissection in some of the European countries, did not have any significant impact on the anatomical activities in Italy [ 17 ].
By the end of 13th century, the University of Bologna emerged as the most popular institution in Europe for learning medicine, attracting students from the whole of Italy and many other countries [ 18 ].
The status of Bologna was further bolstered when it was granted a Bull by Pope Nicolas II inwhereby all students having graduated in medicine from the University were permitted to teach all over the world [ 19 ].
All these events ultimately culminated in the first officially sanctioned systemic human dissection since Herophilus and Erasistratus, being performed in full public display by Mondino de Liuzzi in in Bologna [ 11 ].
The dissection was performed on an executed criminal, probably female and marked its return in the educational setting to study and teach anatomy [ 20 ]. The fact that an Italian university was the platform for the revival of human dissection after a prolonged hiatus in Europe, could be attributed to the efforts of emperor Frederick II and Pope Nicolas II.
Although there is a possibility that human dissections may have been performed prior to De Liuzzi, most authors suggests that all those cases actually involved autopsies and post-mortems and the first such recorded case in Italy of a human body being opened for investigating the cause of death dates back to [ 1721 ].
During the early 14th century, the religious restraints imposed on dissection and autopsy relaxed significantly though the practice of dissection remained limited [ 22 ].
No longer was the church the primary dissuader of anatomical studies, instead public condemnation became the primary obstacle. However the mediating role of the church played a critical role in appeasing the people's social and religious consciences. Religious authorities gave permission as well as clearly delineated and articulated boundaries around the practice of human dissection-this consequently eased the public's anxiety and the procedures were allowed to continue with ever decreasing protests [ 23 ].
From De Liuzzi's time human dissections were conducted in the form of regular university sponsored anatomy teaching sessions comprising of four day exhibitions held once or twice a year and were performed on bodies of executed criminals, both male and female, provided to the medical school of Bologna by the local public authorities [ 9 ].
The whole exercise blindly followed the written text without any attempt to look into the real anatomy visible in the human cadaver which could be due to the fact that the anatomist the Lector did not have a close view of the dissected body [ 24 ]. However during this period unofficial dissections were also carried out in private houses, which involved informal anatomy teaching between a lecturer and his small group of students [ 12 ].
Procurement of cadavers for such private dissections was really difficult and may have led to some malpractice as in four students of Master Alberto, who was a lecturer at the University of Bologna, were prosecuted for robbing a grave and bringing the corpse to the house where Alberto lectured [ 17 ].
Over the course of the 14th century human cadaveric dissection became increasingly common, spreading rapidly to other northern Italian cities. During the middle of 14th century, Universities of Perugia, Padua and Florence made it mandatory to attend at least one dissection for candidates to receive the doctorate degree in medicine [ 25 ]. Such measures were also adopted by medical schools across Italy.

This led to shortage of cadavers available for public dissection by the onset of 15th century as executions were few in number in Italian cities. Consequently the students attending the dissection in medical schools were required to pay for and also attend the subsequent funeral of the corpse after dissection to encourage local families to offer their dead for anatomical studies.
In those days dissections functioned like an extension of anatomical illustration and its goal was not to add to the existing body of knowledge concerning human anatomy but to help students and physicians remember the text in which the knowledge was enclosed [ 27 ].
However the situation changed dramatically towards the end of 15th century with a remarkable flowering of interest in anatomical studies particularly human dissection. The reasons for this new found enthusiasm in human dissection were the revival of antique art in renaissance Italy with its interest in naturalism, rise of humanist faith in classical scholarship leading to rediscovery of Galen's anatomical treatise and a consequent rise of interest among physicians and scholars in Galen's work and increased availability of printed and illustrated works of anatomy which enthused among general people an interest in medicine and the secrets of the natural world [ 28 ].
Accordingly the increasing popularity of anatomy was not confined to physicians or medical students but also involved contemporary artists and even the general population. Later on Leonardo da VinciMichelangelo Buanorottiand Baccio Bandinelli were known to have undertaken detailed anatomical dissections at various points in their career and set new standards in their portrayals of the human figure [ 29 ].
The majority of the artists however limited their investigations to the surface of the body-the appearances of its musculature, tendons and bones as observed through the skin.
Human cadaveric dissection: a historical account from ancient Greece to the modern era
Italian renaissance artists started practising human cadaveric dissection by necessity as they attempted to produce a refined, more lifelike, sculptural portrayal of the human figure in their works [ 30 ]. On the academic front the size of the audience increased dramatically in formal university dissections, which now began to assume a truly public character. Initially these larger audiences were accommodated in temporary structures of seats and risers set up in the interiors of churches and later on during the 16th century in anatomical theatres [ 17 ].
The first permanent anatomical theatre designed for public anatomical dissections was built by Fabricius ab Aquapendente in in the University of Padua. This was followed by the anatomical theatre in the University of Bologna built in and reconstructed in The trend spread in other European countries also and anatomical theatres were built in the University of Leiden the Netherlands in and in University of Paris in Fig.
Meanwhile the ever growing popularity of human cadaveric dissection which had its roots in the later part of 15th century, attained enormous proportion during the 16th century.
Forum events are a requirement for first-year students, as they must attend at least four events throughout the fall semester, but are optional beyond that.
The Culver Center is dedicated to encouraging civic engagement and public service. The program awards four-year scholarships to up to select incoming Simpson students who demonstrate a commitment to public service and civic engagement. The annual John C. Culver Lecture brings a prominent figure in public service or politics to campus to meet with students and deliver a lecture, which is open to the public.
The idea was conceived by the student body to suspend classes on one Tuesday of the year and put in a day of cleaning campus buildings and grounds. Faculty did not know until they arrived at campus to start classes, but were glad to pitch in. Historically, Campus Day was picked early in the year by the student government and reserved as a surprise to the rest of the student body, but today it is announced ahead of time so that students can plan ahead for it.
It is home to eight Greek organizations: Every April, one week is set aside in the Greek community for Greek Week, a series of coed competitions that instill a sense of unity among the houses, while providing friendly competitiveness. The fraternity is known nationally as the "leadership development fraternity". After briefly being shut down along with 3 other fraternities on campus in the s, ATO was rechartered in and has been in continuous existence ever since.
It is currently the largest fraternity on campus in terms of members. They are proud to have removed pledging from their fraternity nationally and focus their specific chapter's activities on scholarship and community service.
The Iowa Sigma Chapter as it is designated within the national fraternity is one of the oldest chapters of Sigma Alpha Epsilon within the realm. The chapter has recently won awards in their national fraternity for academic excellence, excellence in service, and the coveted national chapter achievement award.
In addition, for over 50 years Iowa Sigma was advised by the national fraternities historian Dr. Joseph Walt, for whom the SAE national archives are named for. As such Iowa Sigma is a well recognized and famous chapter within the national fraternity and the men of the chapter have always upheld the highest values of integrity in accordance with the fraternities rich history.
At Simpson currently the men of the Iowa Sigma chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon hold the highest fraternal GPA on Simpson's campus, having done so for the last five years and boast a large amount of Simpson Organizational leaders among their ranks. However, Iowa Sigma caused intense controversy and reprimand after a group Snapchat between members was published to social media "in which multiple Simpson SAE members made derogatory comments about another Simpson student based on her appearance and sexuality.
After the chapter was nationally chartered in as an Upsilon Delta chapter, then subsequently shut down by nationals and by Simpson college, KOY returned to campus in The fraternity saw much success in the s and s, but membership died off in the s and KOY was removed from their house on fraternity row.

They were given a house on D Street, a couple of blocks from fraternity row, and were the only fraternity on campus not located on fraternity row. However, thanks to membership growth by the fraternity and meeting standards set by Simpson College, KOY returned to their former residence on fraternity row formerly Worth Hall in LXA is one of the leading fraternities on Simpson campus for scholastic achievement and dedication to community service. Pi Phi has been at Simpson since After a year absence, it was re-established in Simpson College was the first college attended by George Washington Carver.
Carver once remarked that his time at Simpson taught him that he was "a human being.
