Pubblicità

Girolamo Maria Francesco Matteo Savonarola è stato un religioso, politico e predicatore italiano.

Appartenente all'ordine dei frati domenicani O.P., profetizzò sciagure per Firenze e per l'Italia propugnando un modello teocratico per la Repubblica fiorentina instauratasi dopo la cacciata dei Medici.

Nel 1497 fu scomunicato da papa Alessandro VI, l'anno dopo fu impiccato e bruciato sul rogo come «eretico, scismatico e per aver predicato cose nuove», e le sue opere furono inserite nel 1559 nell'Indice dei libri proibiti. Gli scritti del Savonarola sono stati riabilitati dalla Chiesa nei secoli seguenti fino ad essere presi in considerazione in importanti trattati di teologia. Ora è servo di Dio. La causa della sua beatificazione è stata avviata il 30 maggio 1997 dall'arcidiocesi di Firenze.

„Be earnest in prayer, but do not neglect human means. You must help yourself in all manner of ways, and then the Lord will be with you.“

—  Girolamo Savonarola
Context: God is the best helper, but He loves to be helped. Be earnest in prayer, but do not neglect human means. You must help yourself in all manner of ways, and then the Lord will be with you. Reported in Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895) edited by Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, p. 124

„The reason why I entered into a religious order is this: first, the great misery of the world, the wickedness of men, the rapes, the adulteries, the thefts, the pride, the idolatry, the vile curses, for the world has come to such a state that one can no longer find anyone who does good“

—  Girolamo Savonarola
Context: The reason why I entered into a religious order is this: first, the great misery of the world, the wickedness of men, the rapes, the adulteries, the thefts, the pride, the idolatry, the vile curses, for the world has come to such a state that one can no longer find anyone who does good; so much so that many times every day I would sing this verse with tears in my eyes: Alas, flee from cruel lands, flee from the shores of the greedy. I did this because I could not stand the great wickedness of the blind people of Italy, especially when I saw that virtue had been completely cast down and vice raised up. Letter to his father (25 April 1475), as quoted in A Guide to Righteous Living and Other Works (2003) as translated by Konrad Eisenbichler, p. 17 http://books.google.com/books?id=5GLhEQiogQ8C&pg=PA17&dq=%22wickedness+of+men,+the+rapes,+the+adulteries,+the+thefts,+the+pride,+the+idolatry%22&lr=&cd=1#v=onepage&q=%22wickedness%20of%20men%2C%20the%20rapes%2C%20the%20adulteries%2C%20the%20thefts%2C%20the%20pride%2C%20the%20idolatry%22&f=false

„The Pope may err, and that in two ways, either because he is erroneously informed, or from malice. As to the latter cause we leave that to the judgment of God, and believe rather that he has been misinformed.“

—  Girolamo Savonarola
Context: The Pope may err, and that in two ways, either because he is erroneously informed, or from malice. As to the latter cause we leave that to the judgment of God, and believe rather that he has been misinformed. In our own case I can prove that he has been falsely persuaded. Therefore any one who obstinately upholds the excommunication and affirms that I ought not to preach these doctrines is fighting against the kingdom of Christ, and supporting the kingdom of Satan, and is himself a heretic, and deserves to be excluded from the Christian community. Sermon (18 February 1498) http://books.google.com/books?id=92QaAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA26&dq=%22savonarola+asserted+in+his+sermon+on%22&hl=en&ei=i1uNTYXyFMPH0QGf682zCw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22savonarola%20asserted%20in%20his%20sermon%20on%22&f=false, as translated in History of the Popes (1901) by Ludwig Pastor, as translated by Frederick Ignatius Antobus, Vol. 6, p. 26
