Late anatomy

On moving to Rome in 1513, Leonardo tried to resume his anatomical studies, but he was slandered by a troublesome acquaintance and prohibited from conducting further dissections. Though the existence of his anatomical studies was frequently mentioned by his early biographers, they were not properly understood until they were finally published in the years around 1900. The work of one of the greatest anatomists of the Renaissance thus had no discernible impact on the discipline.
