A few interesting facts about leprosy, everyone’s favorite old-timey scourge!

  • the bells were actually to attract people — many lepers relied on the charity of strangers to survive, and once they lost their voices because of the disease the bells saved their lives
  • between 1000 and 1500, leprosy meant any skin condition, not just Hansen’s Disease
  • the crusades spread leprosy to Europe
  • Nabe-kaburi were people being buried with pots over their heads in Japan. It was believed the pots kept whatever disease killed them from spreading to the living. Modern forensics tells us many nabe-kaburi were lepers
  • it is estimated 1 million people suffer from leprosy today, in India. In the USA, the number is around 6,500
