The Jesuit Atlas • Der Atlas der Jesuiten

As early as the seventeenth century, Jesuits in China began to transfer Western anatomical knowledge to the East, and at the beginning of the eighteenth century, at the behest of the Emperor of China, created a huge and extremely valuable anatomical atlas.

From European anatomical works of the 16th and 17th centuries artistically excellent and very faithful copies were made at the imperial court in China, which have now been identified and compared with the original European drawings for the first time.
