"The Holy Girdle of Prato and the Competition for Grace."

This paper explores the relief sculpture, The Assumption of the Virgin, located above the Porta della Mandorla of Florence's Duomo, sculpted by Nanni di Banco. Its iconography reflects the devotion to the relic of the Sacra Cintola. The essay examines the relief as a manifestation of a wider historical, economic, material, and political discussion.
