(p.119) Chapter Five Laboratories, Space, and Secrecy
Alchemy and Authority in the Holy Roman Empire
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines what sorts of spaces alchemists used to carry out their work in in the cities and courts of the Holy Roman Empire. Practitioners and patrons with the means to do so built special buildings for their alchemical work, while others improvised with whatever spaces were available, such as kitchens, apothecary shops, and workshops. The chapter describes the alchemical laboratory of Duke Friedrich I in Stuttgart, Germany.
