Girolamo Savonarola, the fifteenth-century doom-saying friar, embraced the revolution of the Florentine republic and prophesied that it is going to turn into the guts of a brand new Age of Christian renewal and global domination. This new biography, the fruits of many a long time of research, provides an unique interpretation of Savonarola's prophetic occupation and a hugely nuanced overview of his imaginative and prescient and motivations.
Weinstein kinds out the a number of strands that attach Savonarola to his time and position, following him from his younger rejection of an international he considered as corrupt, to his engagement with that international to put it aside from itself, to his shattering confession—an admission that he had invented his prophesies and faked his visions. was once his confession honest? A forgery circulated by way of his inquisitors? Or an try to break out bone-breaking torture? Weinstein bargains a hugely cutting edge research of the testimony to supply the 1st really pleasurable account of Savonarola and his destiny as a failed prophet.
