    He openly criticized the worldliness and corruption of Pope Alexander VI - Rodrigo Borgia,and annoying a Borgia was not a smart move. Savonarola was excommunicated,and Florence was threatened with the same if they did not do something about him.Savonarola was forced to accept an ordeal of walking through fire by a rival Franciscan preacher so as to prove his claim of being on a divine mission,but although scheduled the event never happened,so Savonarola lost face with the Florentine mob,was seized,tortured,confessed,and then executed as a heretic.
