In The Allegory of Mercy at the Misericordia in Florence, author William R. Levin provides the first complete analysis of the fresco, one of the richest artworks of its era in what it reveals about the society that engendered it and the organization that commissioned it. Intended as both didactic and inspirational, the Allegory of Mercy illustrates that the Misericordia provided a host of services to needy Florentines from as early as the Trecento, offering members and benefactors the opportunity to aid their neighbors while ensuring salvation for themselves. The book received the 2004 Southeastern College Art Conference Award for Excellence in Scholarly Research and Publication.
