The charming ancient myths that Politian and the other learned men retold at Lorenzo’s table were entertaining, but the simple moral principles of Savonarola went deeper. What he said began to puzzle Michelangelo, and to worry him.“What is the one thing each of us has to worry about? His soul. His body is nothing, what is called beauty is nothing: it lasts a day. To run after beauty, to serve Beauty as if it were a god, is folly. The only beauty is the beauty of the soul; and that must be cultivated. How? With prayer, with constant sacrifice, with turning away from the world. #lucreriainlove #savonarola #michelangelo #artgallery #art #sculptures #florence #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries #francoisarnaudtribute

Living comfortably in Lorenzo de Medici’s palace, the young Michelangelo began to draw and to carve with a purpose, a mission. He would be Beauty’s apostle or Beauty’s priest. This had the approval of all the learned men around him. Unfortunately, he was made to doubt, to feel ashamed of just this dedication by a man outside Lorenzo’s circle, who spoke, as it were, into his other ear #lucreriainlove #savonarola #michelangelo #historical #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Savonarola ’s voice was shrill. It told Michelangelo to give it all up, that beauty was an illusion, a trap. Savonarola, a Dominican friar, at that time the prior of an important monastery in Florence, was preaching that Lorenzo de Medici and all the intellectuals in his palace were evil influences. They were leading people away from God. His sermons were so famous that Michelangelo one Sunday morning slipped out of the Medici palace and went to listen and size up Savonarola for himself. He had heard preachers before but none like Savonarola. The man wasn’t really a polished orator but he spoke from his heart and he made good sense, too good. #lucreriainlove #savonarola #michelangelo #artgallery #florence #historical #art #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

(Calumny of Apelles byBotticelli) On the popes in general Savonarola said, Popes and prelates speak against pride and ambition and they are plunged into it up to their ears. The same criticism is evident in Dantes Divine Comedy as well as Boccaccios Decameron. The major difference is that Dante, Boccaccio and Erasmus were writing satire and parody but Savonarola, on the other hand, was dead serious. Like Dante, Savonarola called the Vatican a house of prostitution where harlots sit upon the throne of Solomon and signal to passersby: Whoever can pay enters and does what he wishes. And of Pope Alexander, Savonarola said, he is no longer a Christian. He is an infidel, a heretic, and as such has ceased to be pope. #lucretiainlove #savonarola #popes #alexandrVI #rodrigoborgia #artgallery #medieval #historical #history #inquisition #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

(In the picture Hell, Divine Comedy Illustrated by Botticelli). Savonarola painted horrific pictures of Hell and damnation which easily rivaled those poor souls who gnashed their teeth, pulled their hair and defiled their bodies in Dantes Inferno. Once, in obedience to a voice he heard and interpreted as the voice of God, Savonarola preached one of his most terrifying sermons: «Rethink you well, O ye rich, for affliction shall smite ye. This city shall no more be Florence, but a den of thieves, of turpitude and bloodshed. The shall ye all be poverty-stricken, all wretched, and your name, O priests, shall be changed into a terror. . . . Know that unheard-of times are at hand». #lucretiainlove #botticelli #savonarola #florence #artgallery #dante #divinacommedia #florence #renaissance #papalapartaments #borgiaapartments #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

The people of Florence are far from considering themselves ignorant and benighted, and yet Brother Girolamo Savonarola succeeded in persuading them that he held converse with God. I will not pretend to judge whether it was true or not, for we must speak with respect of so great a man; but I may well say that an immense number believed it without having seen any extraordinary manifestations that should have made them believe it. Machiavelli, The Discourses (Book I, Chapter XI) #lucreriainlove #savonarola #machiavelli #historical #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Watching the scenes of self-flagellation and persecution of sinners was a sobering realisation of the darkness Savonarola had brought to Florence. To this day, the Dominican friar is still commemorated in the city, his condemnation of usury, corruption and avarice still appealing to some. #lucreriainlove #savonarola #florence #inquisition #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Contemporary diarist, Luca Landucci relates : Some boys snatched from a girls head the tiara that held her veil, and her family made a great fuss about it. Fra Girolamo encouraged boys to do (such things) in order to censure scandalous behaviour and gamblers, so that when someone cries Here comes the friars boys! every gambler, no matter how bold, runs away, and the women dress more modestly. #lucreriainlove #savonarola #inquisition #florence #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

The persecution against the sinners also shows the fanciulli, the young boys mustered by Savonarola to receive alms, irritate and round up those seen to be involved in vice, ranging from vanity, to gambling or consorting with the same sex. It is reported that there were up to 4000 fanciulli, deployed into companies across the four quarters of the city (Weinstein). #lucreriainlove #savonarola #florence #inquisition #papalapartaments #borgiaapartments #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

On June 28, 1488 he signed a contract for three years with Ghirlandaio. Lodovico tried to insist that his son take up a more practical and lucrative profession and was not averse to using harsh treatment and words to get his way. Impressed by Michelangelos talent and work ethic, Ghirlandaio recommended him to the head of the ruling Medici family, Lorenzo de Medici. After leaving Ghirlandaio in 1489, Michelangelo dedicated himself to his studies at Lorenzos school from 1490 to 1492. There, he was influenced by many prominent people who modified and expanded his ideas on art, following the dominant Platonic view of the age. During this period, Michelangelo met literary personalities Pico della Mirandola, Angelo Poliziano, and Marsilio Ficino. #lucreriainlove #michelangelobonarroti #artgallery #florenceart #biography #sculptures #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Two biographies were published of Michelangelo during his lifetime. Biographer Giorgio Vasari called his work the pinnacle of all artistic achievement since the beginning of the Renaissance. This viewpoint was upheld in art history for centuries. Michelangelo died in 1564, the year of the birth of Galileo and William Shakespeare. #lucreriainlove #michelangelobuonarroti #artgallery #sculptures #lapieta #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

In his lifetime, Michelangelo was often called Il Divino (the divine one), an appropriate sobriquet given his intense spirituality. His statue of David is testimony to the beauty of Gods creation, even though the artist saw the raw material of inert stone as an obstacle to be mastered, a vault from which the sculptor laboriously released the work of art. One of the qualities most admired by his contemporaries was his terribilità, a sense of awe-inspiring grandeur. #lucreriainlove # michelangelobonarroti #divino #pieta #artgallery #sculptures #pietàdimichelangelo #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

(In the pic Borgias Apartment window, in Vatican) The bolt of lightning which struck St. Peter’s during the time of the Borgia papacy, and comes in now as Alexander is in the middle of offering communion. Alexander’s used the reputation of Rome’s power to justify his actions and cow his enemies; now, with cardinals and altar boys alike crushed by rubble in front of his horrified eyes, his impregnability seems like little more than bluster. Sitting numb amongst the rubble, for once Irons is made to look defeated, not a single scheme humming behind his eyes. #lucreriainlove #papalapartaments #borgiaapartments #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

(In the pic Borgias Apartment window, in Vatican) At the apex of their conversation, Savonarola issued an order to della Rovere in his vengeance: “Be the sword of the Apocalypse, the sword of righteousness. Ride out like Death on a pale horse.” For all the work Alexander’s doing to remove his enemies from power, the expression on his face shows he hasn’t ruled out seeing the real thing in his lifetime. #lucreriainlove #papalapartaments #borgiaapartments #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Piero dei Medici finally makes his exit from the city and Pope Alexander and Cesare plot Savonarolas demise. Despite her objections, it is decided that Lucrezia is to be re-married in the interests of securing another favourable financial and military alliance. #lucreriainlove #papalapartaments #borgiaapartments #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

The tomb of Giuliano de Medici in the Medici Chapel is the only one of Michelangelos great architectural-sculptural projects to be realized in a form approaching completion. Michelangelo did not intend for this sculpture, to be a recognizable portrait of the duke, but instead an ideological tribute through its enhanced beauty and dignity. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #tomb #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnautribute #tvseries

The Rondanini Pietà is a marble sculpture that Michelangelo worked on from 1552 until the last days of his life, in 1564. Several sources indicate that there were actually three versions, with this one being the last. The name Rondanini refers to the fact that the sculpture stood for centuries in the courtyard at the Palazzo Rondanini in Rome. The work is currently housed in the Museum of Rondanini Pietà of Sforza Castle in Milan.This final sculpture revisited the theme of the Virgin Mary mourning over the emaciated body of the dead Christ, which he had first explored in his Pietà of 1499. Like his late series of drawings of the Crucifixion and the sculpture of the Deposition of Christ intended for his own tomb, it was produced at a time when Michelangelos sense of his own mortality was growing #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #pitarondanini #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

David of Michelangelo Bonarroti soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. The eyes of David, with a warning glare, were turned towards Rome. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #Chappellsistine #david #sculptures #artgallery #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #medici #florence #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

Machiavelli and Piero de Medici, are essentially under house arrest as a result of Savonarola’s preaching. His sermons are the equivalent of an Occupy Florence movement, fiery cries which call for not only the abolition of all banking and currency in Italy but the removal of the pope who’s benefited so greatly from that system. #lucreriainlove #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #stevenberkoff #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #fracoisarnaudtribute #tvseries

Most of Alexander’s enemies hate him for purely political reasons, and it’s interesting to see him deal with this new threat, and improvise a solution apart from his usual tactic of bribery and persuasion. It helps that Berkoff (who also played Savonarola in the 1991 television movie A Season of Giants)invests the character with the perfect degree of fanaticism, sermons and quieter moments driven by an unblinking intensity free of the cynicism that pervades Alexander and the College of Cardinals. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #theseasasonofgiants #girolamosavonarola #stevenberkoff #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #cesareborgiailvalentino #tvseries

When P. Morgan (the Morgan library and museum, NYC) purchased this bust, it was believed to be the work of Michelangelo; however, current research suggests that it may be of northern, and not Italian, origin. Crying children were popular elements of seventeenth century Dutch tomb sculpture. This bronze is reminiscent of such heads, in both marble and bronze, by the sculptor Hendrick de Keyser @francoisarnaud #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #hendrickdekeyser #Chappellsistine #sculpture #lapieta #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

The Tomb of Pope Julius II is a sculptural and architectural ensemble by Michelangelo and his assistants. Originally intended for St. Peters Basilica, the tomb was instead placed in the church of San Pietro in Vincoli on the Esquiline in Rome after the popes death. This church was patronized by the della Rovere family from which Julius came, and he had been titular cardinal there. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #sculpture #renaissance #artgallery #Chappellsistine #papagiulioII #lapieta #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by Michelangelo. David is a marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favoured subject in the art of David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, but was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #david #Chappellsistine #lapieta #sculpture #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

The Pity is a work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peters Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French Cardinal Jean de Bilhères, who was a representative in Rome. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinals funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel on the right as one enters the basilica, in the 18th century. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #Chappellsistine #lapieta #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

The Sistine Chapel ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512. The ceiling is that of the Sistine Chapel, the large papal chapel built within the Vatican between 1477 and 1480 by Pope Sixtus IV, for whom the chapel is named. It was painted at the commission of Pope Julius II. The chapel is the location for papal conclaves . services. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #sculpture #renaissance #artgallery #Chappellsistine #lapieta #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

Painter, sculptor, architect and poet Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (March 6, 1475 to February 18, 1564) is considered one of the most famous artists of the Italian Renaissance, with works including the David and Pieta statues and the ceiling paintings of Romes Sistine Chapel, including the Last Judgment. Born to a family of moderate means in the banking business, Michelangelo became an apprentice to a painter before studying in the sculpture gardens of the powerful Medici family. #lucreriainlove #michelangelo #renaissance #artgallery #Chappellsistine #lapieta #sculpture #sculptures #popejulioII #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries

After the death of her first husband, Girolamo, a rumor was spread that Caterina was close to marrying Antonio Maria Ordelaffi, who had started to court her. This marriage would end the claims of the Ordelaffi family on the city of Forlì. Antonio Maria, feeling confident, wrote to the Duke of Ferrara that the Countess promised to marry him. When Caterina saw how things stood, she imprisoned those who had spread the false news.These promises were addressed by the Senate in Venice, which summoned Antonio Maria to Friuli, where he remained confined for ten years. Caterina had fallen in love with Giacomo Feo, the brother of Tommasso Feo, the castellan who had remained faithful to her after the assassination of her husband. Caterina married him in 1488, but secretly . #lucretiainlove #caterinasforza #botticeli #renaissance #artgallery #theborgias #neiljordan #jeremyirons #francoisarnaud #hollidaygrainger #colmfeore #michelmuller #lotteverbeek #davidoakes #anaularu #joannawhalley #rutagedmintas #tvseries
