Zbiory biblioteczne, archiwalne i artystyczne znajdujące się w 1811 r. w opactwie norbertanów we Wrocławiu w świetle inwentarza i sprawozdania z postępowania kasacyjnego z "Akt Büschinga"
Library, archive and art collections from the Norbertine Abbey in Wrocław in the light of the inventory and dissolution report included in the "Büsching Papers"
Languages of publication
The present study is to provide a concise analysis of and present (in extenso) fragments of the so-called "Büsching Papers" dealing with the Norbertine Monastery in Wrocław. They include Büsching’s First report on the seizure of objects kept in the Monastery of St. Vincent in Wrocław (8 January 1811), Inventory of art collections and manuscripts as well as selected letters associated with these actions. The sources contain information not only about the contents and organisation of the library and the archives, but also about their location and furnishings. In addition, they contain details of the seizure of these resources. The inventory of art collections includes paintings and reliefs as well as richly illustrated books devoted to art and, in particular, the history and theory of architecture. Like in the report, there are attempts here to establish the authors of the most outstanding paintings (e.g. Salvatore Rosa, Michael Leopold Willmann).
