The theological virtues (Faith, Hope and Charity) and the cardinal virtues (Fortitude, Prudence, Justice, Temperance) originally formed part of the decoration of the backrests in the Court room of the Mercatanzia in Florence. By the latter half of the 16th century the court and the panels had been moved to the ground floor of the Uffizi, where the masterpiece of Sandro Botticelli remains today.
