This chapter examines the medical practice of Anna of Saxony, focusing on the domestic and experimental traditions at the German courts. Her practice was a learning process, for she was considered as part of a popular interest in hands-on manipulations of nature. Her focus on the handiwork and her modification of both medical equipment and recipes reflects other experimental endeavors at court.

Keywords:   Anna of Saxony, German courts, hands-on manipulation, nature, medical equipment, recipes, experimental endeavors
