Un lieu de reconstitution de la main d'Suvre ? La fonction d'un petit hôpital allemand dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle

Giovanni Maio

Abstracts

Through the example of Donaueschingen, this article pursues the goal of analysing the function of a small German hospital in the grand duchy of Baden in the first half of the 19th century. Examination of the hospital's admissions registers and out-patients lists shows that neither the poor, nor the old, nor the terminally ill utilize the hospital. This conventional clientele is excluded from admission because of a special subscription system introduced by the hospital administration. This for the South of Germany typical kind of hospital insurance is geared to a population of journeymen and apprentices, as well as servants. The hospital, therefore, is to be seen as a place of recovery for the young part of the population which is integrated into the working world.
