Memorial

Profile

Born to the nobility, he was a distinguished soldier. Exiled for killing a blasphemer with his sword, Andrea devoted the rest of his life to penitential acts of mercy. When he was allowed to return home to Siena, Italy, he founded a hospital and the Frati della Misericordia (Brothers of Mercy) to serve there; the Brothers wore a cloak bearing a cross and the letter “M”; their association died out in 1308.
