4 What were the common problems of Public Health in Medieval Britain? What did they do about them?

5 Some advances made in the Middle Ages…. Medieval people knew the connection between clean living and good health. Occasionally, they even took a bath. Unlike the Romans, Medieval towns didn't have sewers or water pipes. People threw rubbish and human waste into the streets. Monasteries developed systems of public health, including fresh running water, wash rooms and sewers. People realised that a room next to a privy (toilet) was unhealthy, and towns paid 'gongfermers' to clear out the cess pits. During the plague many towns developed quarantine laws, and a few opened Plague Houses – separate hospitals for Plague victims. The first hospitals since Roman times were built, such as St Bart's, in London, in 1123.

7 Prestructural: The point or concept has not been understood. The student may have a number of unconnected ideas but cannot distinguish relevance. Unistructural: One relevant idea is explained. Can separate relevant from non-relevant ideas. May be a couple of simple and obvious connections but their significance isn’t grasped. Multistructural: Several relevant ideas on the topic. Several connections may be made but their significance to the whole isn’t grasped. Relational: Understands and explains complex relationships related to the idea or concept. Understands relationship of parts to the whole. Extended Abstract: Shows profound understanding. Transfer takes place. Makes new connections. Can apply to wider contexts and new applications.

8 From Risse, an American Historian of Medicine at SF University. “From the start, providing hospitality and healing the sick became key responsibilities of European monasteries, ….Many were rural peasants, legally free, possibly even owners of small plots who had suffered hard times. As early as Merovingian times [roughly mid-5 th to mid-8 th century], local bishops had been charged with assigning one-fourth of their revenues for the needs of the poor, whose names were kept on special lists, a third in rural parishes. Many were fed, clothed and sheltered in the poorhouse or mansion pauperum adjoining the church. Another frequent recipient of Christian charity was the stranger, a rather broad category that included jobless wanderers or drifters as well as errant knights, devout pilgrims, traveling scholars, and merchants....” (94) Read your sheet carefully. Identify the important features. Write them around the centre.

9 T A S K What role did the Church play in tackling the problems of Medieval Public Health? Write a paragraph explaining the things that Monasteries did to reduce the problems of Public Health.

10 Religious institutions such as monasteries and convents often did caring work for the sick. An example of this can be seen at Fountains Abbey. Look at the diagram on page 76. 1)List the factors at the abbey which would help promote a health life style. 2) Using source A and B identify as many links between religion and medicine as possible. 3) Using page design a leaflet that informs people about Medieval Public Health. Include: Church, monasteries, Problems in towns, solutions

12 CONCEPT MAPS Improved grade These Concept maps have been developed to help you with your revision. The idea is that first – you add ways in which Monasteries dealt with PH problems. Second, draw arrows between connected words and write on that line how the two things are connected timetable Revising hard Plenty of rest Been organised means You are more effective… Knowing more in the exam Gets you more marks! Allows you to Perform at your best in the exam. Been organised means You are more not stressed

13 What role did the Church play in tackling the problems of Medieval Public Health?

14 How effective were responses to the problems of Public Health? Pick a statement and defend it. It's true because... Medieval PH is more effective then our 21 st PH providing free care. The problems of med PH are different, but as difficult to solve as 21st C problems. The Government has Replaced the role of the Church in dealing with PH; the Government in the 21st C has been more successful. Mention at least two of: change/ continuity/ effective / diet / nutrition/ prevention / challenge / solutions
