Galen of Pergam (129/201 AD),
was an ancient Greek physician, whose doctrine dominated Western medicine for thirteen centuries until the Renaissance, when it began to slowly and cautiously be questioned, for example by the work of Vesalio.
Galenics, the art of pharmacists preparing drugs, takes its name from him.
Galen is considered, after Hippocrates, the greatest doctor of antiquity. He was mainly responsible for starting the experimental and analytical method in medicine, mainly in the fields of anatomy and physiology.
