"Fire in the City: Savonarola and the Struggle for the Soul of Renaissance Florence" by Lauro Martines
A doomsday Dominican preacher prophesizing fire and brimstone to a Medici-controlled, Renaissance Florence unless the city purged itself with fire and flame. What else do you need? Oh yeah, a match. Martines ignites it all in a compelling historical narrative that presents Savonarola more as a misunderstood prophet than the Renaissance Taliban that he really was.
