Excerpt from Fra Girolamo Savonarola: A Biographical Study Based on Contemporary Documents

The present work owes its inception to the circumstance that, in the month of February 1898, the writer received for review Dr Ludwig Pastor's brochure Zur Beurtheilung Savonarolas. Dr Pastor had, as every one interested in such matters is aware, treated at some length of the career of Savonarola in the third volume of his Geschichte der Päpste im Zeitalter der Renaissance. His presentment of the facts as well as his judgment upon them, had, however, been somewhat sharply criticised by various writers, and more particularly by Dr Paolo Luotto in an elaborate apology for Savonarola entitled II vero Savonarola e il Savonarola di Lodovico Pastor. To this volume, together with some less important publications, the tract, Zur Beurtheilung Savonarolas, was a rejoinder.

To review the pamphlet, then, was to sit in judgment upon two experts; and such a task it was manifestly unreasonable to undertake without having made some acquaintance with the subject at first hand.
