       Lazarus. 
520    Leprosy has afflicted humans for thousands of years. It 
       wasn't until the twelfth century, however, that the 
       dreaded disease entered the collective psyche of Western 
       society, thanks to a frightening epidemic that ravaged 
       Catholic Europe. The Church responded by constructing 
       charitable institutions called leprosaria to treat the 
       rapidly expanding number of victims. As important as these
       events were, Timothy Miller and John Nesbitt remind us 
       that the history of leprosy in the West is incomplete 
       without also considering the Byzantine Empire, which 
       confronted leprosy and its effects well before the Latin 
       West. In Walking Corpses, they offer the first account of 
       medieval leprosy that integrates the history of East and 
       West. In their informative and engaging account, Miller 
       and Nesbitt challenge a number of misperceptions and myths
       about medieval attitudes toward leprosy (known today as 
       Hansen's disease). They argue that ethical writings from 
       the Byzantine world and from Catholic Europe never branded
       leprosy as punishment for sin; rather, theologians and 
       moralists saw the disease as a mark of God's favor on 
       those chosen for heaven. The stimulus to ban lepers from 
       society and ultimately to persecute them came not from 
       Christian influence but from Germanic customary law. 
       Leprosaria were not prisons to punish lepers but were 
       centers of care to offer them support; some even provided 
       both male and female residents the opportunity to govern 
       their own communities under a form of written 
       constitution. Informed by recent bioarchaeological 
       research that has vastly expanded knowledge of the disease
       and its treatment by medieval society, Walking Corpses 
       also includes three key Greek texts regarding leprosy (one
       of which has never been translated into English before).
