I wonder if anyone can help me with something that’s been puzzling me. I am studying the Italian Renaissance at college and I’m really interested in the rosary. I know that Savonarola had a set of rosary beads of his own, but surely he must have disapproved of the use of rosary beads? Especially as they were often quite beautiful and made of expensive materials.
Does anyone know if Savonarola actually advocated using the rosary?
