abraham men - Abraham Men;
abraham men - Slang term used in England in the 16th-lSth centuries for a class of able-bodied beggars. One of the wards in Bethlem Hospital, London, was for lunatic beggars, and was named after Abraham, probably because of the reference in S. Luke's Gospel to the beggar carried into Abraham's bosom. These lunatics wore a special badge and were allowed to go about begging. Tom o' Bedlam or Abraham Man was the name given to a beggar of this type, and the country became infested with their imitators, known as sham Abrahams or Abram coves.
