Subject:        Question Concerning Measure for Measure

Dear Colleagues:

Our library has had its Arden M for M stolen, and I can't find the
information I need in my Riverside, Norton, or Bevington Shakespeares.
So my question is: the setting for 4.1 in M for M is, of course,
Mariana's  famous "moated grange"; presumably she has a house there. But
what is/was St. Luke's, the place where the moated grange is located? I
know that Luke was the patron saint of physicians, but was/is it a real
place located outside of Vienna? Is/was it something like a convent or a
hospital or a home for boys, etc.?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance,
Ed Taft
