  • Title: The Rise and Fall of a Savonarolan Visionary: Lucia Brocadelli's Contribution to the Piagnone Movement [The author explores Lucia Brocadelli's activities in the reform movement inspired by Girolamo Savonarola. The duke, Ercole d'Este, brought her to Ferrara because of her reputation for saintliness and her support of the Piagnoni, followers of Savonarola. Lucia promoted Savonarola's cult in the monastery she directed. Despite historians' interests in the Piagnoni movement, Lucia's role has been ignored. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
