Klockenbring was treated by Samuel Hahnemann for a mental illness in 1792, when he entered the Georgenthal Sanatorium with symptoms of mania and the baffling ability to combine bits and pieces of poetry that he had learned into poems… at the behest of Ernest I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, formerly Ernest III, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld 1784 - 1844, who was the father of Prince Albert 1819 - 1861 ( Thomas Lindsley Bradford, Life & Letters of Samuel Hahnemann (quote from The Lesser Writings of Samuel Hahnemann, New Yorkpage 243), (reprinted by B.

The description of his treatment for strokes portrayal Klocke Brings during his gloom “of 1796 by the founder of homeopathy, provided the template for an impressive and amusing theatrical adaptation. The Dresden actor Andreas Jung embodied in the one man piece of the physician Samuel Hahnemann and his patients Friedrich Arnold Klocke Bring. An unusual form of mediation of homeopathy as a science by the audience at home and abroad has already been enthusiastically received.
