Nun apothecaries and the impact of the secularisation in Southwest Germany

Continuity and Change

Vol. 25(2) pp. 313-344 (2010)

Abstract: This article examines the interplay of the Secularization of 1803, the ‘professionalisation’ of pharmacy, and increasing state control in Württemberg after 1806 by looking at convent pharmacies and their destiny after the secularization of the convents in 1803. This interplay consequently led to the temporary abolition of convent pharmacies and with them an important occupational niche for female apothecaries was thus lost. The research is based on a detailed case study of the convent pharmacy in Gutenzell in Upper Swabia, 50 kilometres south of Ulm.
