Abstract

These two sessions will address the various ways in which (late) medieval hospitals were integrated into urban society. Aspects of piety and charity, medicine, art, administration and space will be discussed. Different regions of Europe (England, Dalmatia, Tuscany, Germany) were deliberately chosen to compare different social and cultural backgrounds. These sessions are a follow-up to “Care for the Poor in the Middle Ages: A European Survey” at IMC 2005.
