Anuncio

Girolamo Maria Francesco Matteo Savonarola fue un religioso dominico, predicador italiano, confesor del gobernador de Florencia, Lorenzo de Médici, organizador de las célebres hogueras de las vanidades donde los florentinos estaban invitados a arrojar sus objetos de lujo y sus cosméticos, además de libros que consideraba licenciosos, como los de Giovanni Boccaccio. Predicó contra el lujo, el lucro, la depravación de los poderosos y la corrupción de la Iglesia católica, contra la búsqueda de la gloria y contra la sodomía, sospechando que estaba en toda la sociedad de Florencia, donde él vivió.

Predijo que un nuevo rey Ciro atravesaría el país para poner orden en las costumbres de los sacerdotes y del pueblo. La entrada del ejército francés de Carlos VIII, en 1494, en la Toscana confirmó su profecía. Sus críticas violentas contra la familia que gobernaba Florencia en esos años, los Médici, acusándoles de corruptos, contribuyeron a la expulsión del gobernador Piero de Médici por los florentinos en 1495. Sus ataques contra el papa Alejandro VI le valieron, primeramente, la excomunión y la prisión, y más tarde, tras haber sido liberado y conducido a Roma por los grandes comerciantes florentinos, la condena a la hoguera por un tribunal de la Inquisición y la inclusión de su obra en el Índice de libros prohibidos.

Frases Girolamo Savonarola

„If he that would summon a Parliament be of the Signoria, let his head be cut off“

— Girolamo Savonarola
Context: If he that would summon a Parliament be of the Signoria, let his head be cut off; if he be not of it, let him be proclaimed a rebel and all his goods confiscated; … should the Signoria seek to call a Parliament … all may cut them to pieces without sin. Sermon of July 28, 1495, which historian Ludwig Pastor calls Savonarola's "sermon against the tumultuous assemblies, misnamed parliaments, which the Medici encouraged to serve their own ends", as quoted in History of the Popes (1898) by Ludwig Pastor, vol. 5, p. 209. [http://books.google.com/books?id=MZ4YAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA209&dq=%22let+his+head+be+cut+off%22+savonarola&hl=en&sa=X&ei=H-ElT-DWOLGpsAKxqP2MAg&ved=0CDsQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=%22let%20his%20head%20be%20cut%20off%22%20savonarola&f=false]

„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 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.

„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 [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 A Guide to Righteous Living and Other Works (2003) as translated by Konrad Eisenbichler, p. 17]

„I counsel you to return to God, to live after the manner of a good Christian, to repent the past, and recur to piety. Otherwise, I make known to you that severe chastisement awaits you, and that you shall be scourged in your substance, your flesh, and your kindred.
Likewise I announce to you that your life is near its end; that if you obey not my words, you will go to hell, and this letter will be brought up against you before the judgment-seat of God, and leave you no way of escape.“
