THE PROBATE INVENTORY OF THE SAMBIAN CANON ANDRZEJ BRACHWAGEN FROM 1517 (Inwentarz posmiertny oficjala i kanonika sambijskiego Andrzeja Brachwagena z 1517 roku)
Languages of publication
The article concerns the poorly explored topic of the everyday life and the material culture of clergymen and members of the cathedral chapters in the Teutonic Order State. The subject is difficult to investigate due to the scarcity of sources, therefore the probate inventory of the canon mentioned in the title, preserved in the archives in Berlin-Dahlem, is particularly interesting for historians. The author publishes the source text in the appendix to the article; he also presents the biography of the canon and the circumstances of making the inventory. He also describes the structure of the canon's property, which comprised cash, jewellery, silverware, garments, bed linen and bed covering, furniture and household utensils, books and debts.
