Abstract

The present paper discusses the possible influence that the 1777-79 stay in Sibiu, at Baron of Brukenthal’s palace, might have had on Samuel Hahnemann’s early training. In this context, an analysis of the contents of Baron of Brukenthal’s Library as depicted in a catalog to which Hahnemann contributed was performed. Data suggest that Hahnemann was particularly interested in the ideas of Baron d’Holbach. The Appendix describes all the works related to Medicine and Natural Philosophy listed in the catalog.

Keywords: Homeopathy; History; Early influences of Hahnemann; Sibiu/Hermannstadt; Holbach.
