Peter Bridman and others have been wondering

"why WS situated his moated grange at "Saint Luke's".

Might it be because Saint Luke is the patron saint of physicians, and
the world of Measure for Measure is deeply diseased -- literally and
figuratively?

I haven't seen the essay forthcoming in "Shakespeare and the
Mediterranean", but I believe the argument is made there that Measure
for Measure was not originally set in Vienna, but in I forget which
Italian city.  Perhaps we should seek for a St Luke's there.  Any
Italian geographers out there? Anyone know which city?
