  • Tremendas imagenes de una enfermedad que hoy dia sigue ahí :-( . Visité una de las ultimas leproserias de Europa y la verdad que cuando entras, se te corta el aire al respeto que se le sigue teniendo y a esa calma que embriaga el lugar. Todavia existe el muro de unos 3 km, que les separaba del mundo. Si puedes entra solo para ver el pps que hice y asi ves el lugar que tenemos cerca de este sanatorio de Fontilles. Te felicito por el tema. Salu222.

  • 1. I am loved. I have hope. But i need your help.
  • 2. Leprosy was one of the most feared diseases in the Medieval period. The cure for leprosy was not known and the treatment was usually isolation in hospitals or leper communities. Under law a leper had no rights, and under Church doctrines, a leper was considered dead. A leper, unlike any other sick person, could not expect visits, for leprosy was thought, wrongly, to be extremely contagious. Throughout medieval Europe gifts, tolls, and taxes helped to support leper hospitals. When lepers came to town, they had to ring a bell to make sure that other people kept well away from them.
  • 3. World Leprosy Day January 26, 2014 World Leprosy Day is marked on the last Sunday in January. The day was chosen by Raoul Follereau in 1953 to coincide with the anniversary of Mahatma Ghandi’s assassination on 30th January 1948. World Leprosy Day raises awareness in the world of a disease which many people believe to be extinct. Now it is not just the disease which is forgotten, but the people too.
