The scourge of God!

This Italian Dominican friar was determined to rid Florence of its corruption. He was so successful that he brought down the powerful Medici family’s reign. The Florentines finally tired of Savonarola’s government of “purity” and turned against him. He was tried for heresy and burned at the stake.
