This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book provides a comprehensive examination of the foundation, administration, and evolution of the medieval hospital in northern Italy between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries. It describes the rise of the hospital movement in northern Italy within the context of the changing religious, social, and political environment of the city-states. The book also provides an analysis of the groups and individuals who administered the hospitals and their affiliations with other larger religious and community entities. It traces the jurisdictional disputes among the city leaders, the community, individual religious orders, ecclesiastical authorities, and larger political forces. The book explores the process of consolidation and bureaucratization of hospitals in the fifteenth century and the emergence of state control over social services.
