Errors from the Past

“(…) Women suffer the pain of having to nourish the child within their bodies (…)” – Error in 1556

“I would have preferred to omit this chapter on female testicles, that women might not become all the more arrogant by knowing that they also, like men, have testicles, and that they not only suffer the pain of having to nourish the child within their bodies … but also that they too put something of , their own into it.”

De Valverde, Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano, Rome, 1556, Book. 3, xv, p. 68.
