  • Apothecary /əˈpɒθᵻkəri/ is one term for a medical professional who formulates and dispenses materia medica to physicians, surgeons and patients. The modern pharmacist (also colloquially referred to as a chemist in British English) has taken over this role and in some languages and regions the word is still used to refer to a retail pharmacy or a pharmacist who owns one. The apothecaries' investigation of herbal and chemical ingredients was a precursor to the modern sciences of chemistry and pharmacology. In addition to dispensing medicines, the apothecary offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed by other specialist practitioners, such as surgeons and obstetricians. Apothecaries often operated through a retail shop which, in addition to ingredients for medicines, sold tobacco and patent medicines. (en)
  • Les apothicaires et apothicairesses étaient les précurseurs des pharmaciens. Ils préparaient et vendaient des breuvages et des médicaments pour les malades. « Apothecarius » vient du latin et signifie « boutiquier » ce qui correspondait essentiellement aux pratiques des XIIIe et XIVe siècles, où la boutique était l'élément qui différenciait le commerçant sérieux du charlatan de passage. La profession s'autonomisa au XVIIIe siècle et l’apothicairerie fut progressivement remplacée par la pharmacie à partir du XIXe. (fr)
  • Un boticario (también llamado apothicario o apothecario) es aquella persona que está en una oficina de farmacia o botica (que proviene de la voz griega apotheka, almacén o tienda de víveres). Hasta el final del siglo XVII es el nombre que recibe el maestro que está en la botica, que es un establecimiento donde se realizaban los remedios que prescribían los médicos. Desde el siglo XV, había que obtener el título de maestro boticario mediante un examen para poder ejercer la profesión. Con este nombre desaparece al principio del siglo XIX, en el que se regulan los estudios de Farmacia, apareciendo en su lugar el farmacéutico. En uso coloquial, se puede llamar boticario al farmacéutico de oficina de farmacia. (es)
  • Lo speziale nel medioevo era colui che si occupava della preparazione delle medicine, solitamente aveva una bottega, definita spezieria, all'interno della quale effettuava anche attività di vendita delle spezie e delle erbe medicinali. Nella bottega dello speziale si trovavano inoltre i profumi ed essenze, i colori usati in pittura e dai tintori, la cera e le candele, la carta e l'inchiostro e spesso anche dolci speziati preparati dallo speziale stesso.L'attività dello speziale era, in epoca medievale, una delle più redditizie.
