Renowned as the "Mind of the Renaissance," the genius of Leonardo da Vinci reaches beyond the centuries. Painter, sculptor, engineer and scientist, in each field da Vinci was both master and pioneer. Creator of some of the world's great artistic masterpieces, he was also a visionary whose fantastic inventions would become reality only hundreds of years after his death.

Against a backdrop of 15th century Italian opulence, DA VINCI AND THE CODE HE LIVED BY follows the original Renaissance man through glittering palaces of merchant princes, accusations of blasphemy, and whispers of betrayal and romance--all to satisfy a limitless desire for knowledge. From the producers of Nation of Islam and Barbarians, and available on DVD for the first time ever, DA VINCI AND THE CODE HE LIVED BY tells the remarkable story of one man's boundless talent, towering legacy, and courage in the face of powerful adversity.
