"A Rake's Progress" Illustration

Description

"Bethlehem Hospital (Bedlam) moved to London’s Moorfields in the 1670s as a respite home for ‘poor senseless creatures’. [...] Visitors were believed to be of help to patients at Bedlam by introducing ‘jollity and merriment’. In return, a moral lesson on the dangers of immorality was presented to those who came, as madness was considered to be a product of vice." (see Source below)
