I am curious to find out how disabilities were viewed/treated at this time? For example ; blindness, deafness, being stuck in a wheelchair, being mute, not having all your limbs; etc,.. Did the people of this era treat those who were disabled with kindness and compassion, or were they bullied, mistreated, and made to feel like an outcast?
There was a book just recently published on this topic - "Disability and the Tudors" by Phillipa Vincent Connolly. I haven't had a chance to read it myself, but if nothing else it would be a good start since I don't think there has been a whole lot of work done on the subject.
Thanks Lara. Always appreciate an informative answer every now & then!��♂️ Btw, I really love your site and all the work you do, please keep it up! You seem like a very nice, friendly person and you’re beginning to inspire me.
Oh I’m sorry. One last thing, P.S.; Good luck on your move and hope you get settled in and stay safe.
