Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest painters of religious subjects of all time. This lecture examines some of da Vinci’s most important religious paintings as a means of revealing the artist’s unique vision of the most profound mysteries of the Christian faith, with a special focus on three of his works: the unfinished Adoration of the Magi, the Louvre Madonna of the Rocks, and the Last Supper
