Les soins des lépreux au Moyen Âge : approche transdisciplinaire de la fouille à l’histoire du site de Saint-Thomas d’Aizier (XIe-XVIe siècles)

Abstract : Medieval leper house of Saint-Thomas d'Aizier owned to the abbey of Fécamp’s dominium (Normandy). Dedicated to Thomas Becket, this rural edifice a priori of no significant importance is fully preserved and offers the chance of a nearly complete search. Used from 11th to 16th century, the site has been fossilized. Devolved to the care of lepers, a historical and archaeological study allows to understand its organization, origin, operation mode and changes over time. The excavation provided new insights into the living conditions, on sepulcral and non-sepulcral areas, on buried population and on care given to the patients welcomed. This site is also interesting to study the perception of leprosy during the Middle Ages and better understand its social and therapeutic implications.
