We love to hear more about history – and Samantha Morris is on a one-woman quest to educate people about the Borgia and Medici families. Sam was recently interviewed on Chris Staron‘s website all about Girolamo Savonarola entitled “One Man Against the Renaissance”.
You can listen to Samantha’s fascinating talk here:
Born on 21 September 1452, the very same year that Leonardo Da Vinci was born, Girolamo Savonarola: The Renaissance Preacher tells the story of a man who believed so wholeheartedly in God and the message that He was giving, that he gave his life for it.
The book is an introduction to the life and times of this infamous preacher, a man who was witness to the dramatic downfall of the Medici dynasty in fifteenth-century Florence, who instigated some of the most dramatic events in Florentine history and whose death is still commemorated today.
