Leonardo and Anatomy

Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the greatest anatomists of his time and was barely recognized for it in his life time. He performed many dissections and faced many challenges. At that time bodies could not be preserved in the cold because there wasn't such a thing. The public never approved Da Vinci's anatomical dissections. Since the renaissance was based around the church and the ideas of the church people were disgusted that Da Vinci could take apart a human body and not care for it. When Da Vinci went to the court in 1513 he was working very hard on his anatomical studies. When the pope found out about the dissection Da Vinci was thrown out, these things contributed to Da Vinci's depression when he was in Rome.
