The Stigmatization is on the entrance arch. The Renunciation of Worldly Goods appears in the lunette of the left wall; the Confirmation of the Rule in the opposite lunette; St Francis before the Sultan immediately below; the Apparition at Arles on the opposite wall; the Death and Ascension of St Francis below; the Vision of the Ascension of St Francis on the outer wall above the entrance arch. Only three of the original four Franciscan saints represented at the side of the window have survived: Louis of Toulouse Clare and the badly damaged Elizabeth of Hungary. The painted roundels on the vault enclose badly-preserved allegorical figures: Chastity, Poverty and Obedience; the fourth roundel has not survived.
The Bardi Chapel was completely whitewashed in the eighteenth century, as was the Peruzzi Chapel, and tombs were built against its walls, destroying parts of the frescoes.
