The piety of michelangelo

Interactive 3D modelThe disputes between Savonarola and the Borgia family, especially with Pope Alexander VI, would eventually cost the Florentine religious his life. On May 13, 1497, Alexander VI excommunicated Savonarola; the pope’s followers entered Florence and imprisoned him and several of his followers. The strongest accusations he faced were his disobedience, and contempt for the precept, and pontifical censures with which he had been commanded to abstain from preaching; another, having ardently requested that the king of France Charles VIII enter Italy with his army to subjugate its provinces under the pretext of reforming the Court of Rome, and the customs of the Ecclesiastics. On May 8, 1498 Savonarola signed his confession, and on the 23rd of the same month he was executed at the stake along with two other followers in the Piazza della Signoria, the center of Florentine power.
