Annemarie Kinzelbach is a historian. Her main area of research is the society in German Imperial towns and territories from the 14th to the 18th centuries. She published “Gesundbleiben, Krankwerden, Armsein in der frühneuzeitlichen Gesellschaft” in 1995, a comparative case study on the interdependence of medical culture, poor-relief and health-care in the environment of early modern cities. Her articles include studies on early modern medical professions, on hospitals, the impact of epidemic disease (pestilence, French disease, leprosy), the meaning of medical concepts in early modern societies, gendered health care, the early modern medical market, practising medicine (based on the journals of a doctor in early 18th century Nuremberg), a medical doctor’s practice and the culture of the learned, the interrelation between medical practice, therapy and medical knowledge. Most recent studies focus on the social meaning of medical practices such as post-mortems, and the interrelation between every-day policy and health care in the Holy Roman Empire. A monograph, published in 2016, describes the interplay of political and cultural tasks and the representation of artisanal surgeons.
