Leonardo da Vinci: Artist, Scientist, Mystic — by the Staff of the Rosicrucian Research Library

“Leonardo da Vinci: Artist, Scientist, Mystic” — by the Staff of the Rosicrucian Research Library, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest

Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) typifies the art, science, and spiritual yearnings of the Italian Renaissance. During this vibrant transitional period, medieval Western Europe was reawakening to the knowledge and wisdom of the ancient world. This was transmitted to them through reexamining what had been preserved in the West, but even more dynamically, from Constantinople and the Byzantine Roman East, as well as through Islamic science, art, and literature. The result of this fusion was the Renaissance of the fifteenth to sixteenth centuries, which ushered in the modern Western world.

This podcast is a reading of selections from the instructional booklet prepared for the da Vinci exhibit at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose and at the Rosicrucian Cultural Center at the Toronto Lodge during 2006.
