It should be emphasized that I do not believe that the VHP directors made a conscious effort to situate digital dissection in a European Renaissance tradition. My goal was merely to elucidate how the current practice of compiling and disseminating digital body data reflects and constructs persistent cultural norms involving age, gender, spectacle, identity, transparency, and crime and punishment, and how these various norms are historically interrelated. 33 Just as public dissections in the Renaissance reflected and constructed contemporary norms regarding the body, the design, materialization and dissemination of digital cadavers articulates our current norms with regard to the body and its transparency.

The supply of unclaimed cadavers kept pace with the number of bodies needed for dissection each year. This changed around 1500, when public dissections began to attract larger crowds, and the demand for fresh cadavers increased accordingly (Park , 1994, pp. 14-15). To keep up with demand, anatomists started to recruit cadavers of convicted and executed criminals, in addition to the bodies of individuals who had died of some kind of disease and whose body was donated or left unclaimed (Lassek , 1958).
