Abstract

This paper focuses on hospitality for the needy and considers how throughout history, even when religion is subjugated, there has always been recognition of the importance of hospitality in necessitudine or charitable hospitality. The paper presents a brief historical summary of hospitality based on the Abrahamic model of hospitality, which is shared by the three monothematic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It then compares those historical practices to the hospitality offered by the Archdiocese of Glasgow. It concludes by reflecting on the constantly evolving religious practice of providing hospitality to those in most need, through exploring this aspect of hospitality which is often overlooked in the current hospitality management literature.
