Other aspects of Ambroise Paré’s lifeInternational Orthopaedics, 2013Co-Authors: Philippe HernigouAbstract:
His father was, according to some, a cabinet maker, but others, on probably better traditional evidence, state that he was valet de chambre and Barber to the Sieur de Laval. Several of his near relatives were in medical occupations. Thus his sister Catherine married Gaspard Martin, a master Barber–Surgeon of Paris. He died following an amputation of the leg performed upon him by Pare. In a pamphlet written by a Surgeon named Comperat, Pare was accused of having been more or less responsible for his brother-in-law’s death, because he had used the method of ligation of the vessels to check the haemorrhage at the operation, instead of cauterising the stump. One brother, Jean, whom Pare greatly praises his skill in detecting the frauds of beggars who shammed diseases and deformities, was a master Barber–Surgeon at Vitre, and Pare and is supposed to have studied with him at for a time. He had another brother, also named Jean, who was a cabinet maker in Paris. Pare adopted his daughter Jeanne, giving her a handsome dowry when she married Claude Viart, a Surgeon of Paris, who had lived 20 years in Pare’s house as his pupil (Figs. 1, ,22).

respectful image revenge of the Barber SurgeonAnnals of Surgery, 2005Co-Authors: Charles E BagwellAbstract:
Although some separation of surgery from the practice of medicine had begun to develop in early medieval times, this was accentuated in 1215 by the Fourth Lateran Council, a papal edict which forbade physicians (most of whom where clergy) from performing surgical procedures, as contact with blood or body fluids was viewed as contaminating to men of the church. As a result, the practice of surgery was relegated to craft status with training by apprenticeship through guilds. Physicians followed a university-directed program of education, which involved knowledge of the classics and writings of ancient medical authors such as those by Galen, which allowed no independent thought or inquiry. Competition among physicians and Surgeons, including the lowest group of surgical practitioners, the Barbers, continued until Henry VIII signed a charter in 1540 uniting Barbers and Surgeons in London. This Guild of Barbers and Surgeons, forerunner of the Royal College of Surgeons, established a regulatory agency for training and certification of surgical practice, which set the stage for legitimizing surgery as a profession.

Thomas Vicary and the anatomie of mans body.Medical History, 2020Co-Authors: Duncan P ThomasAbstract:
The Tudor Barber–Surgeon, Thomas Vicary (1490?–1561/2) is remembered for three main reasons. As Sergeant-Surgeon to Henry VIII, he used his position at court to advance the status of surgery in England. In the famous Holbein painting, Henry VIII is shown handing the charter of the 1540 Act of Union between the Barbers and Surgeons to Vicary, emphasizing the prominent role he played in promoting this amalgamation. Second, Vicary played a major role in the successful refoundation of one of the great London hospitals, St Bartholomew’s, after the dissolution of the monasteries. Third, he was the author of the first textbook of anatomy published in English, which is the subject of this article.1
thomas vicary Barber SurgeonJournal of Medical Biography, 2006Co-Authors: Duncan P ThomasAbstract:
: An Act of Parliament in 1540 uniting the Barbers and Surgeons to form the Barber–Surgeons’ Company represented an important foundation stone towards better surgery in England. Thomas Vicary, who played a pivotal role in promoting this union, was a leading Surgeon in London in the middle of the 16th century. While Vicary made no direct contribution to surgical knowledge, he should be remembered primarily as one who contributed much towards the early organization and teaching of surgery and to the consequent benefits that flowed from this improvement.
