[Hospitals, leper-houses and holy healers and in medieval Berry].

Abstract

Around the year 1000 many problems have been put throughout the beginning of urbanization, the increase of the country people, the pilgrimages and the spreading trade. The study of the medieval Charts allows to clarify how the sick were cured in the first hospitals-hôtels-Dieu- and how the lepers were isolated and kept outside the cities. When the recovery was impossible the intercession of saints was the only hope for the knight as well as for the peasants.
