In Episode 125 we look at the experience of poverty in Tudor England, as well as the Tudor Poor Laws, leading up to the 1601 Elizabethan Poor Act. Something radical happened with the Dissolution of the Monasteries - care for the poor was suddenly shifted from being something that the church handled through the monasteries, to being something that fell on the government's shoulders. The debate about who should care for the poor has been with us since then.
