Leonardo da Vinci: Not Religious Yet Angelic

Leonardo da Vinci painted the most beautiful angels in the world. Since there are no actual angels, his pictures of them are literally the most real, the most gorgeous, the most magical that exist. This is strange, because Leonardo was not a religious man. Although some scholars make a case for him as a religious artist, there is very little in his notebooks to suggest that Christianity was part of his everyday, personal life. Shopping lists are more prominent than prayers among his notes.
