"Magalhães Basto, in addition to addressing the origins of the Confraternity of Porto, digs deeper: The History of Portugal is the natural framework always present. It refers to the national origins of this fantastic movement that was the foundation of the Misericordias, highlighting the virtues of this sublime woman, the Queen Lady Dona Leonor. Magalhães Basto looks far beyond the city walls. To that extent, this study represents an important contribution to the history of the movement of social solidarity in Portugal." (Francisco Ribeiro da Silva)
