Example text

But there is nevertheless an evident growing impatience in Becchi’s correspondence with Savonarola and the regime that tolerated him. As the confl ict continued, Becchi elaborated with increasing detail the precise criticisms and mockery circulating in Rome of Savonarola and the Florentines. ”16 On March 26 he wrote that public opinion in the Roman court viewed the authority permitted Savonarola and his fanciulli—gangs of boys who publicly enforced Savonarola’s moral agenda— as dishonorable, disgraceful, and outright dangerous, adding that given the ubiquity of such statements and the stature and authority of those who voiced them, their judgment was difficult for him to contradict.

But Machiavelli’s tone suggested a more universal connection between political renewal and Christian prophetic language. Lest his readers have forgotten earlier lessons, he specifically referred to the sixth chapter and its conclusion that armed prophets always win. Weinstein saw Machiavelli’s conflation in that chapter of the categories of prophet, lawgiver, and innovator as evidence that Machiavelli had begun to see Savonarola in more complex terms, as a founder figure in the mold of Moses, Cyrus, or Theseus.

Nowhere in Machiavelli’s writings did he denounce that quality. On the contrary, it was one of two crucial qualities always possessed by an ideal ruler. The Guicciardini letter’s vision of Savonarola as a crafty manipulator rather than a fraud or hypocrite was indeed consistent with the Becchi letter, a pithy distillation of the Becchi letter’s analysis of a tactical factional leader who manipulates and fools many but whose stratagems are laid bare by Machiavelli’s gaze. Machiavelli also recognized that Savonarola knew how to deploy the instincts of the lion to frighten the wolves.
