Part Two: The Form and Function of Medieval Hospitals

Professor Carole Rawcliffe

Professor Carole Rawcliffe offers an overview of the hospital as it existed in the Middle Ages, along the way outlining the place of women and religion in the medical practice of the time and dispelling the myth that the Tudors lived in complete, unhygienic squalor.

Carole Rawcliffe was an editor on the History of Parliament Trust (1979-92) before becoming a Senior Wellcome Trust Research Fellow at the University of East Anglia (1992-7). She was made Reader in the History of Medicine (1997-2002) and Professor of Medieval History (2002).

Her research focuses upon the theory and practice of medicine in medieval England, with particular emphasis upon hospitals, the interconnection between healing and religion, and urban health.  As editor of The History of Norwich (2004), she maintains an interest in the East Anglian region, and has written extensively on its medical provision.  Her most recent book, Leprosy in Medieval England (2006), is a study of medieval responses to disease.  She is currently investigating concepts of health and welfare before the Reformation.
