Anatomists devote their careers to the scientific study of the body, often using magical means to aid or inform their research.
Thus, when a new anatomist level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in a spellcasting class he belonged to before he added the prestige class.
If the anatomist is of another race, or has specifically chosen another race as their main field of study, then his anatomical attack affects that race rather than humans.

Marcello Malpighi: Anatomist and Physician, edited by Domenico Bertoloni Meli.
This volume, a specialized collection of essays on the impact of Marcello Malpighi, the seventeenth-century anatomist and physician, grew out of a conference held at Cambridge in 1994.
It was fortunate to pique the interest of an Italian publisher, since a collection as specialized as this rarely finds an American or English one.

 Visible Human, Know Thyself: The Digital Anatomist Dynamic Structural Abstraction
There is a need for a symbolic model of the structural organization of the human body, which could invest with meaning the graphical information extractable from the clusters of voxels and their geometric coordinates that make up the Visible Human data sets.
The Fm is an abstraction that, in accord with declared principles, describes the physical organization of the material objects and 3D spaces that constitute an idealized human body.
It is our contention that the Digital Anatomist Foundational Model as a whole, and its Anatomical Structural Abstraction in particular, will furnish the formal representation of knowledge that will provide for the intelligent navigation of the Visible Human data sets.

 Antiqua Medicina: vesalius
Many a contemporary reader must have wondered why Vesalius took this risk; he must have found it meaningless if not counterproductive, that the great anatomist should have labored to veil his empirical investigations in the garb of so artificial a language.
Yet Vesalius believed that by recovering true and correct speech the road was paved for the recovery of true and correct knowledge.
However revolutionary Vesalius’ achievement may seem to the modern historian, for him it was only the revival of the work of ancient anatomists.

 SciFan: Books: Anatomist, The by Federico Andahazi (from our database of Fantasy & SF novels, anthologies, collections)
It is no accident that Federico Andahazi draws a parallel between his Renaissance hero, the anatomist Mateo Colombo, and the explorer Christopher Columbus.
It is the conceit of his first novel, The Anatomist (beautifully translated from the Spanish by Alberto Manguel), that both Colombos made "equally momentous and disturbing" discoveries.
The Anatomist is based on a historical figure and historical fact; what Andahazi provides is his title character's heart and soul.

 German anatomist used executed Chinese prisoners' bodies: report. 18/01/2004. ABC News Online   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
Controversial German anatomist Gunther von Hagens used the corpses of executed Chinese prisoners to create his exhibitions of synthetically preserved human bodies, according to German news magazine Der Spiegel.
Der Spiegel reports that a centre operated by Von Hagens's company in the Chinese coastal city of Dalian held a stock of 647 preserved bodies in November 2003, which were destined to be either exhibited or sold to universities.
The anatomist appeared last year before a parliamentary committee in Kyrgyzstan to answer questions about the discovery of around 200 decaying corpses in the basement of a centre he established in Kyrgyzstan's medical academy.

The Anatomist is a tale of obsession comparable to Victor Frankenstein’s frenzied attempts to re-animate dead flesh.
The eponymous Anatomist, Mateo Columbo is spurned by the woman he loves and subsequently scours Europe, frequents brothels, and eventually trawls grave yards and charnel house for corpses to dissect, all in pursuit of something to “control the capricious will of woman”.
Though this is in many ways a marvellous book: instructive, entertaining and exquisitely written, it is at times wholly unbelievable.

 Andahazi, Federico: The Anatomist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
This historical novel is set in 16th century Venice, where the great anatomist and physician Mateo Colombo has just been charged with heresy and placed under house arrest.
Like his explorer namesake, the Renaissance anatomist ventured forth into new territory, setting aside prejudice and popular opinion, as well as (in Mateo's case at least) the weight of church authority.
However, although the anatomist struck a blow for objectivity in observation, his interpretation of the findings was compromised by cultural bias; in this case, by good old-fashioned misogyny.

Engines of the Human Body offered «fresh interpretation» of structure and function; Keith reported that it met «fair success, but was soon out of date.» His Menders of the Maimed was a historical critique of orthopaedic surgery, combined with an exposition of the natural powers of living bone.
Keith the populariser, however, also revived the scientific side of the college’s work, gave stimulating demonstration-lectures, and encouraged surgeons and anatomists to use the museum; but there were then no students at the college and little facility for research.
There he continued his work on congenital disabilities of the heart and its embryological development and he wrote extensively on the endocrinology of racial characteristics and on anthropological topics.

The maverick anatomist who has carried out Britain's first public autopsy in 170 years is unlikely to be prosecuted, it emerged last night.
The man's son had written: "Because of the heart-felt solidarity my father felt for the professor, and based on numerous discussions with him, I can confirm that a public postmortem of his body would be in full accordance with his wishes."
Roger Soames, of the British Association of Clinical Anatomists, who condemned the show, conceded that Prof von Hagens may have found a loophole in the law by calling the operation an autopsy rather than dissection.

 Natural History: An awful, terrible dinosaurian irony - 19th-century British anatomist Richard Owen and the etymology ...
In our culture, reptiles serve as a prime symbol of slimy evil and scaly, duplicitous, beady-eyed disgust - from the serpent that tempted Eve in the Garden to the dragons killed by Saint George or Siegfried.
Owen (1804-92), a professor at the Royal College of Surgeons and at the Royal Institution, and later the founding director of the newly independent Natural History division of the British Museum, had already achieved high status as England's best comparative anatomist.
A recent biography by Nicolaas A. Rupke, Richard Owen: Victorian Naturalist (Yale University Press, 1994), has redressed the balance and restored Owen's rightful status as brilliantly skilled (in both anatomy and diplomacy), if not always at the forefront of intellectual innovation.
