VISITATION PROTOCOLS AS A SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE ON THE ACTIVITIES AND WORK OF THE LOWER ECHELONS OF THE ECCLESIASTICAL ADMINISTRATION OF THE VOLYNĚ VICARIATE IN THE YEARS 1853–1918
Languages of publication
Parish priests’ activities in the second half of the 19th and early 20th century were quite varied and demanding and they can be explored through a variety of historical sources. One of them is a set of visitation documents which the parish priests themselves drew up as they were responsible for their handling and filling. By responding to questions in the visitation questionnaires they reported on the status of their parish to the higher echelons of the church administration. They did not send in only reports on their parishes but also on their duties, opinions and work. The present study aims to show the great variety of duties that had to be performed by the parish priests by analysing the visitation protocols from the territory of the Volyně vicariate from the period 1853–1918. In addition, using the answers to the questionnaire questions, it endeavours to uncover something from the personal sphere of their life; for example, whether they were cultured, whether they used to have personal hobbies in their free time, or which genre of literature they preferred.
