Dr. Carl Rudolf Klinkenberg (Germany): Rediscovered: Hahnemann’s Life in Paris

In my presentation I will guide you through the fascinating world of Samuel Hahnemann’s time in Paris with the help of authentic photos and pictures. Portraits and newly discovered documents provide a vivid impression of his personality and the town where he lived.

Hahnemann and his second wife Marie Mélanie moved to Paris in 1835. Among his patients were such notable aristocrats and artists as the violinist Paganini, the sculptor d’Angers and Baron de Rothschild. Hahnemann refines his method of diluted C potencies and additionally develops the Q potencies. These were extremely happy and productive years. Hahnemann was lucky in love and visibly invigorated. He had a splendid and highly renowned clinic. Contemporaries described his clinic at the Rue de Milan as a palatial building surrounded by attractive gardens.

Through intensive research at the Paris archives I was able to establish the location and extent of Hahnemann’s estate. Key for this was the analysis of historical town maps and the discovery of his original lease agreement from 1837, a hitherto-unknown document with highly interesting information.

Moreover, additional Hahnemann documents unknown to this day, were discovered, such as the Decree from King Louis-Philippe himself granting authorisation for Hahnemann to set up a practice, the last will and testament of Mélanie d’Hervilly, made before her marriage. The currently unknown personal account of an encounter with Hahnemann and Hahnemann’s love letters to Mélanie. With the aid of such original material, Hahnemann’s life and his personality can vividly be brought back to life.
