From around the eleventh century until the Reformation, a close connection between the Church and hospitals was formed as they became a refuge for the ill, ostracised and poor. First published in 1926, John Morrison Hobson presents a fascinating survey of the hospitals and almshouses found throughout medieval England. Full of photographs and illustrations, Hobson surveys the almshouses by geographical location and provides a social and historical context for each. This practical and interesting study will be of use to students and academics with an interest in English hospitals and almshouses, their relationship to the Church, and English social history more generally.
