I know this is a way off the topic of your post, but I was wondering if you could help a fellow writer with a Renaissance question?

My story takes place in Tudor England. One of the lead characters is a Wise Woman or a healer. When I"ve had people read the manuscript most people don't know what a wisewoman is. Do you have any suggestions for what I can call this character?

I think you're calling her the right thing. If people aren't understanding the term, you'll have to make it clear from her actions and words what she is. The reader might not understand the term when she initially encounters it, but should by the end of the scene. The only other term I can think of, other than healer, is midwife, but that's probably not exactly what you want.
