Galen's enormous output of medical writings abounded with descriptive detail and observation which could be verified directly from nature. For close on a millennium Galen had been regarded as infallible, a position endorsed by the mediaeval Church, but his findings were repeatedly challenged by anatomists and physiologists of the Renaissance. Vesalius and Harvey avoided the censure of the Church but others like Servetus were burned at the stake or imprisoned for lengthy periods by the Church authorities. Many of Galen's remedies (Galenicals) remained in the Pharmacopoeia until modern times.
