Abstract or description

Originally founded in 1247 as St. Mary of Bethlehem, Bethlem Royal Hospital (herein Bethlem) is Britain’s oldest hospital for the treatment of mental illness and a contemporary National Health Service (NHS) psychiatric facility. Bethlem was immortalized in Hogarth’s 1735 engraving The Madhouse in Rake’s Progress and subsequently became known as Bedlam. Thus Bethlem became synonymous with madness itself.
