Great Scientists, 16th C, The early Renaissance - Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 - 1519)

Leonardo Da Vinci, A Man of Both Worlds
ThinkQuest site by three high schoolers (in 1996) with material aimed at three levels: Novice, intermediate and advanced. Good concept with some seldom seen graphics, but thin on actual content

Leonardo, Scientist, Inventor, Artist
Based on an exhibition at the Museum of Science, Boston in 1996

Leonardo Da Vinci, Renaissance Man
Biographical material that shows how, as a Renaissance man, Leonardo was accomplished at a wide range of arts and sciences. Was this the reason that, for all his genius and many projects started, he rarely finished anything?.

Exploring Leonardo
Part of a motivating, interactive website, this section is aimed at late elementary school and encourages the user to get thinking themselves.

Leonardo, Portrait of a Dyslexic Genius
Not only does this author give intriguing evidence that Leonardo might have been Dyslexic but it states that his Helicopter drawing was made into a paper model!

Leonardo Da Vinci - University of St Andrews, Scotland
Excellent information focussing on Leonardo as a mathematician & scholar

Vinci, Leonardo's Home Town
Charming and useful site with many useful sections - The Leonardo Museum (models of his ideas), the Leonardo Library ...

Leonardo da Vinci's Adding Machine
A controversial replica built in 1968. Was it a machine for showing ratios or gears ... or was it a calculating machine? You be the judge.

ArtCyclopedia, Leonardo Da Vinci
Mainly links to Art Galleries that show examples of Leonardos work on the web but many useful biographical and background links

Leonardo Da Vinci, Web Museum, Paris
Critical analysis of his most influential paintings

Leonardo Da Vinci, (1452-1529)
Good biographical material

Google Web Directory: Arts>Art History>Artists>D>Da Vinci, Leonardo
Although biased towards his artistic life, this has many links to his scientific achievements.

Leonardo in Star Trek
Leonardo was Cpt Janeway's holgraphic companion, first seen on VOY Season 3 "Scorpion, Part 1" and featuring in VOY Season 4 Concerning Flight"

Episode summary of "Scorpion, Part 1"

Episode summary of "Concerning Flight"

"Phillips Star Trek Reviews
Some pointed criticisms of this episode although, like everyone, this reviewer is fascinated by the concept of Leonardo da Vinci on a starship!

"Sliding Away
Mostly about the exit of John Rhys Davis from the series "Sliders" but it also includes the actors thoughts on his appearance in this episode.

  • Well done on a nice blog Kirok of L'Stok. I was searching for information on Leonardo da Vinci Mona Lisa and came across your post Great Scientists, 16th C, The early Renaissance - Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 - 1519) - not quite what I was looking for related to Leonardo da Vinci Mona Lisa but very interesting all the same!

    Well we're already into 2006 and I wish you all the best. I'm doing a lot of original work on Leonardo, including looking in detail at the technical drawings of machines and human anatomy. We're also publishing a detailed analysis of the Last Supper and Annunciation, which should be quite interesting.

    If you do have a moment, please take a look at our latest galery on: Leonardo da Vinci .

    Wishing you well in the new year! Amon
