  • The Life and Martyrdom of Savonarola, Illustrative of the Church and State Connexion by R. R. Madden (1853) in two volumes
    "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:" [2 Tim. 4:3]

    "Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof." [Matt. 6:34]

    "For the letter killeth, but the spirit quickeneth." [2 Cor. 3:6]

  • I read "Romola" by George Eliot, which is set in this period. The politics were complicated. A wikipedia page on Savonarola just to refresh some outline points.

    Wikipedia can be dodgy sometimes, and some folks complain it's run by a Jєω Jimmy Wales, but it's still okay for many topics sometimes, like red birds or blue birds, big fish or little fish, pine trees or oak trees, motor boat or sail boats, etc.
