Five hundred years after the death in Florence of the Dominican preacher Girolamo Savonarola, this collection of essays reassesses his impact on the politics and culture of the Italian states both during the friar's public career and in the broader context of the invasion and occupation of those states by non-Italian powers. Savonarola was a pivotal figure in the political life of Florence, in addition to which his career opens up the exploration of Renaissance spirituality, prophecy and ecclesiastical reform. His legacy is also traced through the art of High Renaissance Rome, Counter-Reformation music and the index of prohibited books.
