Medieval Healthcare and the Rise of Charitable Institutions: The History of the Municipal Hospital examines the development of medieval institutions of care, beginning with a survey of the earliest known hospitals in ancient times to the classical period, to the early Middle Ages, and finally to the explosion of hospitals in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.  For Western Christian medieval societies, institutional charity was a necessity set forth by the religion’s dictums—care for the needy and sick was a tenant of the faith, leading to a unique partnership between Christianity and institutional care that would expand into the fledging hospitals of the early Modern period.  In this study, the hospital of Saint John in Brussels serves as an example of the developments. The institution followed the pattern of the establishment of medieval charitable institutions in the high Middle Ages, but diverged to become an archetype for later Christian hospitals.

Offers the first full-length, detailed study of medieval hospitals and their connection to the history of institutional careConnects the case of St. Johns in Brussels to the larger context of medieval historyProvides relevant discussions for historians interested in charity, hospitals, gender, urban regions, lay devotion, and patronage
“Insightful study of the Hospital of Saint John in Brussels interweaves the complex relations among burghers seeking the vita apostolica in a confraternity, the needs of a growing city, and competition over control between religious and secular authorities. Ziegler’s painstaking research shows that Saint John’s innovative set of statutes established a truly public hospital and served as a model for many other hospitals in the Low Countries and northern France. ”(Shennan Hutton, Lecturer of Classics, University of California, Davis, USA)“This book will make a useful introduction to the institution of the hospital and to society’s obligation to assist those in need. I know of no other book that fills this niche.” (James Brodman, Professor Emeritus, University of Central Arkansas, USA and author of Charity and Religion in Medieval Europe (2009))
