Giroloamo Savonarola (1452-1498) In "Sins of the Father," Father Philip states that the mark of the lamb found on the boy Michael was discussed in a volume by a previous Legacy member Savonarola. Savonarola was an Italian monk and martyr in the 13th century. He was noted for warning the terribly corrupt Borgia papacy in Rome that unless they mended their ways the Roman Catholic Church would fall. The Borgia Pope had Savonarola branded a heretic and killed. Within 50 years came "The Schism" in the Catholic Church resulting in a dual papacy--one in Avignon, France and the other in Rome. - thanks to Megan for providing this bio for us!
