An anatomical theatre was an institution used in teaching anatomy at early modern universities.
The Waag’s Theatrum Anatomicum was built in 1691 as a space dedicated to advanced experimenting,
observing and learning.
The theatre was usually a room of roughly amphitheatrical shape, in the centre of which would stand
the table on which the dissections of human or animal bodies took place. Around this table were
several circular, elliptic or octagonal tiers with railings, where students or other observers could stand
and get a good view of the dissection almost from above and unencumbered by the spectators in the
rows in front.
