The heart is the center
I hope they don't notice
Harvey’s major discovery was discovering the circulation of blood and that it can only go in one direction and it has to be continuous. This was his biggest discovery because nobody knew this and this was an anomaly for people who did not know anything of the body. He discovered that blood has to go to the lungs and blood is oxygenated. All of this things nobody knew and he helped the human race discover more about the human body.
Harvey had some suspicions about how the liver could be the center of circulation and after studying the vascular system in a hospital and with dissections of the human body. He discovered that the heart was the centre of the circulatory system and he figured this out through various experiments. All of his knowledge came from dissections and surgeries.
William Harvey had some trouble with the church because his ideas were against the ones backed up by the church. The ideas before him of the liver being the center of circulation were backed up by the bible and if Harvey had gone against them in a different time period he would have been burned. Many people did not believe that the blood circulates through our body but some people change. William Harvey went against the church in a time period where he was not alone in going against the church, therefore he was backed up by other people.
