Artist's Description

The origin of almshouses lay in medieval monasteries, which built houses from which alms and hospitality were dispensed. The religious links remained: often almshouses were intended to contain small communities who had to attend regular services to pray for the souls of the benefactor. The houses frequently included a chapel and generally the priest who took the services supervised the residents.
