The purpose with this study was to examine the mentally ill on the Birgitta´s mental hospital in Vadstena during the 19th century. To narrow down and to help myself with this research I used these issues/questions: What did it take to be classified as mentally ill? How were the patients treated compared to today? Was it any patient who was declared healthy?
