University of Chicago Press

This chapter explains that the noblewomen described in this book are beyond the ordinary in early modern Europe. In fact, these noblewomen had advantages that few people during the period could match. Since they were educated and landed, these noblewomen had the means to procure recipes, ingredients, medications, and practitioners without expecting monetary compensation for their healing practices. In addition, these noblewomen were literate and had access to the tradition of sharing medical recipes and medical advice, which enabled their contributions to be recorded.

Keywords:   early modern Europe, noblewomen, recipes, ingredients, medications, healing practice
