    • His ideas dominated medical training until the 1800s
    • Built on the theory of the four humours.
    • To prove his theory of the anatomy of the human body, Galen dissected animals, which led to incorrect theories including that humans have two jaw bones.
    • The church banned human dissection so he could only dissect animals.
      • The church also banned people from questioning Galen's work.
    • The church liked his work because it supported the theory that God created humans.
