On the opposite walls are scenes from the life of Christ, dated 1333-41. now attributed to Lippo Memmi, a pupil of Simone Martini. At the back of the church, on the nave walls, are scenes from The Last Judgment, painted by Taddeo di Bartolo (1393-6). They depict the souls of the damned being tortured in hell by devils relishing their task. The tiny Santa Fina chapel, off the south aisle, is covered with a cycle of frescoes by Ghirlandaio (1475) telling the life story of St Fina; legend has it that she spent most of her short life in prayer.
