Giovannia di Michele Savonarola
              Giovanni was born in the year of 1385 in Padua, Italy. Giovanni was a Humanist, physician and scientist. Giovanni studied Medicine at the University of Padua. Eventually he became a professor at the University of Padua.
         Giovanni is what you would call a prolific author. He wrote many medical writings based on Avicenna, Aristotle, Galen, Hippocrates and contemporary knowledge. He also continuously stressed that experience and observation were extremely important. Giovanni played a very important role during the epidemic of the Plague.
               He began changing things such as;
                   He gave friars and priests instructions on what to do with a person succumbing to the end of their life with plague;
Firstly disinfect/fumigate the patients room
They should take confessions at a distance below the patient, with a sheet soaked in vinegar & water stretched between them.
During the exchange, the confessor should keep a disinfectant, called a “zedoaria” in his mouth & brush his teeth with tiriarca before entering.
Savonarola also advised against thinking dangerous sentiments i.e. ‘heavy thoughts 
Probably produced the second most famous plague tract during the 15th century
           Giovanni also discovered that to bandage someone it should be distal to proximal for compression therapy treatment of leg chronic venous insufficiency. Giovanni also invented Rosolio Liqueur - a traditional liqueur with the sweet savor of rose petals.
           He is also the grandfather of Girolamo Savonarola, a Dominican friar.
            Giovanni died in 1468 in Ferrara, Italy.

Go on, my child, and continue to do the will of God.

No confessions.

I must have forgotten this city is full of saints and martyrs.

Soon, Firenze.

Soon there will be a coming tribulation unlike anything anyone’s seen before! Your only hope for salvation is repentence.

There is nothing in this world but greed and sin. Do not take part! For it will mean death.

But seriously, I’m thinking of some sort of plot with Girolamo.  I’d like to make him more activedslkgja, even if some of our more active characters aren’t in Florence, maybe it might help move along some sort of antagonist in Giro.  Dunno, I’ll think about it but any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

They are gone now.

I did not foresee this…this abandonment.  Though I am uncertain what it means… And yet—is this not what I’ve prayed for?  Did not the Lord deliver these people out of the hands of tyranny?  And now that the last of the Medici has gone, the will of God may finally be carried out…

And it falls to me.

This city will prosper under His rule.  Under His guidance, I will aid Him in this earthly realm and I will purge the demons that infest this city.  Through Him, by His will, I will build this city into one of Faith, a New Jerusalem.  

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit…
