The entries made from the end of the 16th century in Church Registers are a proof of how not only the language used to describe for a description of death, but also the mentality of nunnery life were changing in the course of subsequent centuries. Death-related rhetorics applied in the discussed entries was in the beginning strictly informational in nature. The influence of literary conventions of the Baroque caused the entries about the nuns’ deaths to have a more poetic, moderately embellished character. Thus demise was seen as gaining eternal reward for living according to God’s commandments, as an introduction to heavenly feast. The entries dating back to the last decades of the 18th century contain echoes of the search for consolation and a stable spiritual basis in the face of changeable worldly reality. The didactic character of the excerpts from Church Registers from the 19th century places death in the context of the path to sanctity.
