Speaker: Professor Helen King, Medical Historian

This lecture examines how human dissection was seen in the time of Leonardo da Vinci. What was its place in the medical curriculum, and was it supported or condemned as a way of finding out the truths of the body? How did Leonardo gain access to human bodies, and what did he do with the information he found there?
