Today Savanarola Was Burnt at the Stake




Edit: today, he was burnt at the stake in Florence. It was a nice spring day. At the very least, you could say that he was severely punished for his troubles. It’s a much more glorious end than being cyber-bullied to death by an obese fruitcake of a “catechist” or being sued by the Vatican’s gay law firm.

He was not, as so often painted, an early Protestant-time reformer. Rather, he was against the corruption of the Vatican, and what he call now "gay" goings on among some(not all) parts of the curia, the lax living of Cardinals and bishops, and priests, and the laxity in many monastic Orders.
Savanarola came from a branch of the Dominicans which no longer exists....what he might call today the "Dominicans of the Strict Observance". His monastery of San Marco, the Dominican monastery at Fiesole, and a handful of others in Tuscany and Lombardy in Central Italy were strongholds of a "reformed" Dominican congregation....much stricter than the other world-wide Dominican houses at that time. Not many realize that in Savanarola's time, there were over 20,000 Dominicans, and double that the number of Franciscans,OFM. Of course the Jesuits did not even exist yet. But there were over 30,000 Benedictines and Cistercians each at the time, not to mention medium and small sized Orders, and over 2 million nuns of every Order and description (at that time, ALL but afew, cloistered).
Savanarola died in the 1490's. Within 40 years, thanks to the Protestant Reformation, the Dominican Order went from over 20,000, to only about 10,000. All the Scandinavian and Germany houses except in Bavaria were lost.
He was often depicted/presented as an early Protestant, and thus before Vatican II put in a very bad light. Nowadays, he would be considered a traditional Catholic, while the Pope (Francis), is the heretic fit to be burnt at the stake (not literally of course) :)
