A limited space, warmed artificially, and in which the air is slowly renewed. It is used for drying various substances, as plants, extracts, conserves, or for taking vapour baths. In this case, the stew or stove is said to be wet or humid; in the opposite case, it is said to be dry, (F.) seche. The latter, which is used by the Turks, is the Laconicum or Calidarium of the Romans. The former is their Tepidarium or Vaporarium. These kinds of baths greatly excite the cutaneous transpiration; and are valuable agents in rheumatic and other affections.
