Święcenia duchowieństwa we Włocławku w 1516 roku
The clergy's ordination in Wlocławek in 1516
Languages of publication
The study attempts to extend the source base enabling us to follow the practice of the clergy’s ordination in Poland in the pre-Trident era. Queries embraced manuscripts from the Diocese Archive in Włocławek among which there were hitherto unpublished lists of clergy from the Włocławek bishopric and adjacent dioceses. The author managed to find accounts concerning the ordination of the clergy conducted by one of the Kuyavian suffragan bishops – Aleksander Myszczyński – in Włocławek in February 1516. The analysis of the accounts allowed the author to verify current opinions about the practice of the clergy’s ordination by Polish bishops presented in the literature of the subject matter. The author also demonstrated data which may be used in prosopographic research on the clergy in the Włocławek diocese at the beginning of the 16th century.
