It strikes me that he might have been down for this thread:

Savonarola reminds me of Archbishop Lefebvre in a lot of ways.
Are all of the negative reviews only because of his association with Machiavelli? Oh, I see. You were comparing their "excommunications." Good point.
A great Christian man, no doubt about it.
There was a movement by some Dominicans to open a cause for him about 10 years ago. It was opposed by some Jesuits because St. Ignatius was very much against the proliferation of his works and his veneration. Here's an article summarizing this from about 10 years ago, but I can't seem to find whether there has been any developments since.

He's too Calvinist for me...  Sticking tongue out at you
I did not vote as I have never read a biography of him although I have read much about him.  Can someone here provide for me the name of the best biography?

St. Philip Neri loved him and, according to the biography of him (St. Philip) that I read, Savonarola had quite a following in the 1500s.
He was an early wreckovator.

He reminded me of the sedevacantists.  Didn't he say that Alexander VI couldn't be the pope because he was so immoral?
