Hospitals and Communities, 1100-1960


Sanford, Charlotte A., The Historian


Hospitals and Communities, 1100-1960. Edited by Christopher Bonfield, Jonathan Reinarz, and Teresa Huguet-Termes. (Bern, Switzerland: Peter Lang, 2013. Pp. 430. $128.25.)

This collection of papers is a worthy successor to The Impact of Hospitals, 300-2000 (ed. Henderson, Horden, and Pastore), which appeared in 2007 by the same publisher. The current collection's chapters originated in conference papers that share the concept of communities and how they defined themselves through and for their hospital institutions. This thematic thread is, unsurprisingly, more prevalent in some of the essays than others, but as a whole the volume coheres successfully.

The fourteen chapters are grouped into five categories. "Communities and Isolation" examines how plague victims were treated in seventeenth-century Florence (John Henderson) as well as how lepers were treated in early modern Venice (Jane Stevens Crashaw), Crusader Jerusalem (Rafael Hyacinthe), and late nineteenth- through early twentieth-century Trinidad and Tobago (Rita Pemberton). "Communities and the Poor" considers economics and identity in late medieval England (Carole Rawcliffe), Barcelona (Teresa Huguet-Termes), and Catalonia (Josep M. Comelles), as well as Portugal from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century (Laurinda Abreu). "Hidden or Reluctant Communities" reveals aspects of overlooked caregivers--Catholic religious women in late nineteenth-century England (Carmen M. Mangion)--and vulnerable patients such as lepers on Chacachacare Island in the early twentieth century (Debbie McCollin), as well as enslaved individuals in the antebellum American South (Stephen Kenny). "Communities and War" focuses on regimes and their use of propaganda through hospital treatment in Carlist Spain (Jon Arrizabalaga, Pablo Larraz-Andia, and Guillermo Sanchez-Martinez) and World War I Russia (Peter Waldron). …
