Sacrilege and Redemption in Renaissance Florence: The Case of Antonio Rinaldeschi

Published 2018

Forough Publishing has published a new Persian edition of Sacrilege and Redemption in Renaissance Florence: The Case of Antonio Rinaldeschi by Giles Constable, Professor Emeritus in the School of Historical Studies, and William J. Connell, former Member in the School. The book, centered on the story of Antonio Rinaldeschi, who was hanged in Florence in the summer of 1501, shows how the political and religious context of Renaissance Florence resulted both in Rinaldeschi's death sentence and in the creation by the followers of Savonarola of a new religious devotion, in the heart of the city, commemorating the event.
