Abstract

Stefano Dall'Aglio, Savonarola and Savonarolism. Translated by John Gagné. Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, Toronto , pp. ISBN . CND .. As an introduction to a topic of perennial popular and scholarly interest, Savonarola and Savonarolism is elegant, informative, and admirably brief. Stefano Dall'Aglio succeeds through a consistent adherence to the clearly defined mandate of his introduction. At the very beginning of his book, Dall'Aglio sets out the three most pertinent qualities of the account that follows. First, it is a deliberately popularizing study intended to summarize and synthesize a range of recent scholarship. Second, it is an account not so much of Savonarola himself as the historical tradition of Savonarolism, in which the eponymous preacher's life and death constitute only one chapter, albeit an important one. Finally, it explores Savonarolism almost exclusively in terms of the political struggles of the city of Florence, both internal and external, from the end of the fifteenth century to the dawn of the seventeenth. Dall'Aglio says little about the actual content of Savonarola's teaching, and scarcely more about the social and economic foundations of the discontent which catalyzed around the charismatic Dominican from Ferrara.
