, a favoured pupil of T. Bartholine, and strenuous defender of his fame
and opinions, was born at Dresden, about the year 1630.
After visiting France, England, and other parts of Europe,
to improve himself in knowledge, he took the degree of
doctor in medicine at Basle in Swisserland, in 1652, and at
the end of four or five years, passed principally with Bartholine, to whom he was strongly attached, he settled at
Bern. His works are principally controversial, defending
the priority of the discovery of the lymphatics by Bartholine, against Rudbeck the Swede, who claimed it and
ivho, if he did not discover them, Haller says, has the
merit of having more fully and accurately described them
than- Bartholine had done. Bogden, in this contest, displayed much learning, but equal roughness and ill-humour.
The titles of his works are, “
liudbekii insidise structae
vasis lymphaticis Thomas Bartholini,” 4to, and “
pro vasis lymphaticis Bartholini, adversus insidias secundo
structas ab Olao Rudbek.” Haffnice, 1654, 12mo. “
Simeonis Seth, tie alimentorum facultatibus,” Gr. and Lat.
Observationes Meclicae ad Thomam Bath.”
The observations, twelve in number, are published in the
Culter Anatomicus” of Lyser Copenh.
