The time changed

The 16th century was a huge turning point in medicine and science because anatomy came along. Before time, people relied hugely on God, when they were sick they would just sleep and believe that they were cured when they wake up. They had very lethal treatments like a hit with a hammer. At that time, there was a lack of anesthesia so they would prefer for a person to die rather then attempt a cure.
