Fabriciusor Fabrizio Girolamo

Fabricius, or Fabrizio, Girolamo, called "Aquapendente" from his birthplace, was born in 1537, and became a famous professor of anatomy in the university of Padua, where Harvey was his pupil. His discovery of the valves of the veins led to the latter's theory of the circulation of the blood. He died in 1619.

“Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.”
Isaiah 53:4
