In the 18th and 19th centuries what happened to the poor and the sick-poor in norther and southern Europe differed. In the Catholic south, where industrialisation was slow to make an impact, the Catholic Church introduced a programme of reform at all levels but along traditional lines, such as the founding of new orders dedicated to the care of the poor and sick and new institutions where they could be housed. This volume forms the fourth and last volume of a four-volume survey of health care and poor relief in Europe between 1500-1900 edited by Ole Peter Grell and Andrew Cunningham.
