Languages of publication
The article surveys the residences of the deans of the Brzeźnica deanery in the 19th c. The seats of the deans were parsonages in the parishes in which they acted as parish priests. The source basis of the article are inventories customarily drawn up at the introduction of a new parish priest. At the time in question the deans resided in Kamieńsk, Pajęczyn, Brzeźnica, Wiewiec and Dobryszyce, primarily in town parishes. Their residences were wooden parsonages with shingled roofs, except for one brick building. The value of the brick parsonage exceeded the sum value of the other four ones. The buildings were not very old but they often needed repairs. On the average, a parsonage was 163 square meters in area; it had a porch, a vestibule, rooms, a hall, a dressing room, closets, a kitchen, a larder and servants rooms. One of the parsonages had a garret, the other had lofts. The parsonages also had cellars. The inventories mention various parts of the interior, such as ceilings, walls, floors, doors, windows and stoves, which were usually of higher quality and in a better condition in the priest’s rooms than in the servants quarters. Priests leaving parsonages often left them in a condition that required renovation.
