Peter Bernardinus

Peter Bernardinus an Italian reformer, the intimate companion of Savonarola, was a Florentine by birth and of humble descent. He was attracted by the teaching of the great Italian reformer, and after the execution of Savonarola frequently met his followers secretly, and encouraged them in steadfastness to the faith. He finally became a leader among the Italian reformed, and as such forbade all participation in the sacraments of the Church of Rome, favored communistic life, diligence in prayer, and simplicity in dress. Pursued by the Church and by the State, he fled with all his family to the home of count Picus de Mirandola, but on the way he was captured and, after a hasty trial, was condemned to be burned.
