    Science revolutionised so much: Copernicus discovered that everything revolved around the sun, kicking conventional wisdom of the Ptolemeic system that it revolved around the earth. This of course was heresy since it challenged theTheologians (and if they could get something so fundamental wrong what else didn't they know?) So it became an era of questioning and experimentation in Art, whihc was controlled by the Church for the most part; eventually it put man at the centre of everything rather than God. THe only way to square that was to insist that man was in God's image.

    For the first part, 'How was R. ...', look up Leonardo da Vinci AND anatomy studies together in a reference work/on the Internet. (And that will partially answer the second part of your Q also...)
