Five hundred years after his death at the stake, Girolamo Savonarola remains one of the most fascinating figures of the Italian Renaissance. This wide-ranging collection, with an introduction by historian Alison Brown, includes translations of his sermons and treatises on pastoral ministry, prophecy, politics, and moral reform, as well as the correspondence with Alexander VI that led to Savonarola’s silencing and excommunication. Also included are first-hand accounts of religio-civic festivities instigated by Savonarola and of his last moments. This collection demonstrates the remarkable extent of Savonarola’s contributions to the religious, political, and aesthetic debates of the late fifteenth century.

Donald P. R. Beebe is an independent scholar and received a Ph.D. from Yale University. Anne E. Borelli received a M. Phil. from Yale University. Maria Pastore Passaro is Professor of Italian Language and Literature at Central Connecticut State University.

"The volume's strength rests in its fluid translations. Readers should be especially grateful for the care given to the frate's highly visual style and the peculiarities of his language."—Renaissance Quarterly
