Water cure; near-panacean, purificatory use of water internally and externally. Silesian farmer Vincenz (Vincent) Priessnitz (1791-1851) originated hydropathy early in the nineteenth century in Germany. Msgr. Sebastian Kneipp revived it in the same century. Hydropathy survives mainly in the context of kneipping.
