Inventory of the Basilian monastic library in Uniów from 1789
Languages of publication
The inventory from the Basilian monastic library in Uniów was created on 18 March 1789, which was connected with the dissolution of the monastery that took place in April, 1790 as a part of the regulation of a parish led in Galicia during the reign of the Emperor Joseph II. It included printed books, organized according to their formats. Among 127 printed volumes there were 106 titles, as some books had been published as a series of volumes or the library owned a few copies of the same title. The manuscripts stored in a monastic library, in a number of 20, were presented under one title. The prints date for the years 1563-1777. Publications in Latin and Polish dominated, on the third place there were Cyrillic books. As far as the content is concerned, what prevailed in the library were theological and homiletic works. The books from the library in Uniów were obtained by the Lviv University Library, where they were sorted: duplicates were given to the general seminary in Lviv and Galician gymnasiums, and publications useless in the process of education were put up for auction. The inventory from Uniów incorporated into the University Library probably shared the fate of the library collection, which was largely destroyed by the fire in the library building on 2-3 November 1848.
